Grades: Each in-class exam counts 20%, the homework counts 15% (the lowest
homework grade will be dropped), and the comprehensive final exam counts 25% of the
final grade. No exam grades will be dropped and all in-class exams will be weighted
equally (i.e., there is no “bonus” for any improvement in grades from one exam to the
next). There will not be any extra credit opportunities for improving one’s grade. While
in-class participation is welcome and encouraged, it will not play any part in the grading
procedure. The final letter grades will not be curved and will be based on the student’s
final numerical average, calculated as described above. The numerical cut-off points for
different letter grades may be lowered slightly, at the instructor’s discretion, based on
grade distributions, but they will not be raised. With the possible exception of A+ and C-,
plus/minus grading will not be used.
