Grading

Students will be given two midterm exams (common for both sections) at nights, and comprehensive final exam. The course average is calculated as follows:

Exam 1 25%
Exam 2 25%
Final exam 32%
Quizzes (top 10) 8%
Project 10%

Attendance will be rewarded for students by giving quizzes. The grade system is based on the following dustribution:
A..100%-93%       A-: 90%       B+: 87%       B: 83%       B-: 80%       C+: 77%       C: 73%       C-: 70%       D+: 67%       D: 60%       F..59%-0%
+/- Grades may be given for borderline percentages.

Homework/Quizzes:
Homework will be assigned after each session. Each day we will spend time going over examples, homework problems, and quizzes. You are responsible for all problems assigned, see Course Calendar for a list of problems associated with each chapter. Quizzes will be given almost every class in the weeks without exams. Quiz problems are from homework problems and examples given in class with numbers change. There are no makeup quizzes. I'll drop half quiz grades and keep only highest scores.

Project:
Project is due before Thanksgiving break. You choose one of three available projects; its final version must be printed, including student's name---no hand writing.

The final Exam is scheduled on December 16, at 11:30 am for both sections at While Hall 205. Makeup final for both sections will be given on Dec. 17, at 3:00 pm, Wales, 226
