General Exam rules


Doing regular homework is essential in this course.

For homework instructions, click here.

Selected homework problems will be updated regularly throughout the semester.


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.

<>The grading scheme is traditional; no plus-minus grades are given:
     90 - 100,   80 - 89,   70 - 79,   60 - 69,   0 - 59.
