Course Grades for Math 309, Fall 2014
Your 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
90-100 A (possibly +/-)
80-89 B (possibly +/-)
65-79 C (possibly +/-)
< 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."
