General Exam rules

Homework

Doing regular homework is essential in this course.

The course grade is based entirely on four one-hour Exams.  Exam 4 is given at final exam time.
For each student, the lowest-score Exam counts one-half as much as each of the other three Exams.
Thus the lowest exam score counts 1/7 of the grade, and the other three exam scores count 2/7 each.

Suppose your four exam scores have values A,B,C,D.
If D denotes your lowest exam score then your average will be determined by the formula:
Average = (2A + 2B + 2C + D)/7.

The Exams are graded by hand; work must be shown to get full credit; there are no multiple-choice questions.

90 - 100,   80 - 89,   70 - 79,   60 - 69,   0 - 59.
