GRADING POLICY:
Three periods (September, October, November) are graded out of 200 points each (50
points for classroom participation, in-class individual and group work, and day-to-day
home work; 50 for take-home test, handed out approximately ten days before the due
date; and 100 for in-class test). 150 points are awarded for the semester group projects
presented in December, and 250 points for the cumulative final exam including the topics
from all three periods plus topics introduced in December.
200+200+200+150+250=1000 (maximum). Extra credit opportunities will be offered.
900 points out of 1000 corresponds to “A” level, 750 is sufficient for “B”, 600 guarantees
“C”, 500 points is the passing level.
