GRADING:  

The semester grade will be determined as follows:

 The mean (average) of all tests (3 + S-Cubed) .......... - 45%

 Pledged problems/quizzes/lab activities/Projects ........ - 30%

 Final exam (comprehensive) ...................................... - 25%

 

Pledged problems are selected problems from your homework which shall be turned in and graded.  Quizzes are unannounced.  Lab activities include directed computer exercises.  Projects will give you the opportunity to further explore selected concepts.  You will be asked to present problems to the class and participate in group discussions. 

The grading scale is a ten point scale.

 Six week grades should be viewed as a progress report for the entire semester.  All 6 week grades will be cumulative from the beginning of the semester!
