GRADING ALGORITHM Here is the formula that will form the basis of your grade: Prelecture Quizzes 20% (11 out of 14 required) In – class Participation (Piazza) 10% 4 th Hour Attendance 10% (7 out of 9 required) Midterm Exams: 40% (20% each) Final Exam 20% Grades will be rounded to the nearest whole number, and assigned a letter as follows: F D D+ C- C C+ B- B B+ A- A <=64 65-66 67-69 70-72 73-76 77-79 80-82 83-86 87-89 90-92 >=93 ACADEMIC HONESTY I expect that everyone will abide by the Mount Holyoke College honor code both in and out of the classroom. Note that sharing quiz or exam answers (in or out of class) are in violation of the College honor code. Moreover, in order to protect the integrity of the honor code, I request that you report violations that you witness (anonymously, if preferred) to me. Any student found to be in violation of the honor code could receive a failing grade for the class and be reported to the Academic Honor Board . For more information on the honor code, consult the student handbook ( pdf ). CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT I expect that everyone will strive to maintain a mutually respectful classroom environment that is conducive to learning and the open exchange of ideas. In this spirit, I ask you to arrive on-time for class and refrain from packing up your things before class ends. In addition, please refrain from using personal electronic devices for anything that is not class-related.
