Exams: There will be three 1-hour exams announced well in advance of their date (tentative dates Sept. 25, Oct 30, Dec 2). Each exam will be worth 100 points. There will be no makeup exams.
Final exam: Dec 11, 3:30 – 6:30 PM. There will be a final exam worth 200 points.
All students must take the Final Exam.
Quizzes: There will be a ten-minute quiz almost every week. There will be a total of 10 - 12 quizzes. There will be no makeup quizzes. 2 lowest grades for quizzes will be dropped. Your best 8 - 10 scores will be chosen to constitute (after possible renormalization) a quiz grade of possible 100 points. Any missed quiz will be the one that you drop.
Homework: will not be graded. Quizzes will be based on homework problems.
Grading: You have a total of 600 possible points: 100 points for each of the three 1-hour exams, 100 points for the quizzes, and 200 points for the Final Exam. You will be able to drop the lowest "100 points". The lowest "100 points" may be one half of the Final Exam. This gives you a possibility of 500 points. Your final grade will be determined from these 500 points as follows:
450-500 (>90%): A; 435-449: A- ; 420-434: B+; 400-419 (>80%): B; 385-399: B-;
370-384: C+; 350-369 (>70% ): C ; 335-349 : C-; 300-334 (>60% ): D;
000-299 ( <60%): F
