Grade information may be found on the lms page. Final grades consist of:
Weekly(ish) Quizzes: Because homework is only suggested, (almost) every week’s recitation will consist of a short quiz to keep you up to speed with concepts recently covered. Each quiz is scored out of ten points, and taken together will be worth 25% of your final grade. No makeups will be given for quizzes, but the lowest two scores will be dropped to address sick days/athletics events/etc.
(Likely) exam dates: 3/3, 4/7 (updated), and 4/28 (25% of final grade each)
An optional final, which may replace your lowest test grade, will be given during finals period (to be determined). A little confidence never hurts, but please do not buy plane tickets home before the finals period, just in case you need to take this exam.
If you’d like to appeal a grade, please contact April (your TA) if you have any questions about graded quizzes, and the instructor for regrades on exams. I have a semi-formal method for appealing exam grades to help both parties understand what specific complaints are – I’ll give instructions in the future.
Guaranteed grades are as follows:
|A: >92||A-: 90-92||B+: 87-90||B: 82-87||B-: 80-82||C+: 77-80||C 72-77||C-: 70-72||D+: 67-70||D: 60-67||F: < 60|
There is a possibility of a grade curve at the end of the semester, but this will not be determined until after the final.
