Grading Philosophy

There will be 3 exams, a couple of quizzes, and 4 assignments.

Turn in your assignments on the due dates in class, or ask for an extension which will cost you a few points.

Each exam is worth 15% of your grade.

Each assignment is worth 10% of your grade.

Each quiz is worth 2-5% (depending on the number) to a total of 10%.

The final grade will be decided on a curve.

Border line cases will be decided based on your class participation.
