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% 
Policies
 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.
