Computation of Grades
In order to pass this course you should obtain a grade of at least 50% on the final exam. If you score less than 50% on the final exam, then your final grade will be your score on the final exam.
If your grade on the final exam is at least 50%, then your final grade will
be calculated by the following formula:
|Assignments: || 15%
|Midterm Exam: || 30%
|Final Exam: || 55%
- The midterm exam is given in class on November 3.
There will be a total of five assignments of equal weight.
Your lowest assignment grade will be replaced by your score on the final exam if this is to your advantage.
- Assignments, their solutions, midterm solutions, and your grades
will be posted on Virtual Campus.
Assignments should be dropped off on the due date between 8:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. in the designated assignment box which is located in KED close to the building entrance.
Late assignments will not be accepted. I will not make any exceptions.
- The midterm exam cannot be rescheduled. In the event of a
justified absence (e.g., providing a doctor's note)
the weight of the missed midterm will be transferred to the final exam.
You must provide appropriate documentation as soon as possible.
If you do not provide proper justification in a timely manner,
you will receive a zero grade.
