Course
Grades for Math 309, Fall 2014Your scores for WebWorK, the written homework, and the exams will be used to determine your grade for the course. WWSCORE
= WebWork
Score:
10 % (two lowest (%) WebWorK scores are dropped) HWSCORE = Handgraded Homework Score: 20 % (two lowest (%) HW scores are dropped) E1 = Exam 1 Score: 20 % E2 = Exam 2 Score: 20 % F = Final Exam Score: 30 % ( If F is larger than E1 or E2, then F will replace the smaller of E1 and E2. But this applies only if you have actually taken both E1 and E1 -- that is, you can't choose to skip an exam, get a 0, and then expect the final to replace the 0.) Your letter grade for the course will be based on your Total Score T: T = 0.10 * WWSCORE + 0.20 * HWSCORE + 0.20 * E1 + 0.20 * E2 + 0.30 * F I
won't create a scale for converting T into a letter grade until the
end of the course. However, the following "floors" are guaranteed: 90-100
A
(possibly +/-)
80-89 B (possibly +/-) 65-79 C (possibly +/-) 50-64
D < 50 F It is possible that the final grading scale will be a little more generous, but maybe not. If you are registered for the pass/fail grading option, then your T score will need to be at the level of C- or better to earn a "pass." |
