You’ll have a GPA grade for each Test, your homework, the Special Problems and the Final. The weighting of the
grades, though subject to change, is, at present: 10% for each Test, 25% for homework, 20% for Special Problems,
and 35% for the Final. Grades will perhaps amount to 80-85% for A, 65-70% for B, 50-55% for C, 40-45% for D.
Each grading item will have “Gradelines” assigned to it. For example, if the B gradeline is 70, the A gradeline is
85, and your score is 80, then your GPA grade, G, for that item is G := 3+ 80−70 “=” 3.67. Here, (G is rounded
to 2 places after “.”). In other words, your GPA grade is a B plus 2/3 of the way between B and A. Your
GPA grade, G, on any grading item is computed using your score on it, and numbers g (the grade corresponding
to the highest gradeline smaller or equal to your score), glb (the highest gradeline smaller or equal to your score),
gla (the lowest gradeline greater than your score):
G=g+ your score − glb
gla − glb where glb is the gradeline just below your score, gla is the next gradeline - above your score and g is the grade
number: 5 for a 100% score, 4 for the A gradeline, 3 for B, etc. If your score falls on a gradeline,...
