Grade Scales, Averages and Semester Grades

There will be three hour exams. In addition, there will be weekly homework assignments, weekly open book/open note quizzes, daily boardwork for students to present problems in class, a written group project, and the Final Exam. If the percentage on your final exam is better than the percentage of your lowest hour exam, I will replace your lowest exam by your final. Your Semester Grade will be determined by averaging your grades on these items with the following weights:
               3 hour exams, worth                100 points each
               quiz average, worth                 60 points
               1 project, worth                    30 points
               homework average, worth             40 points
               boardwork, worth                    20 points
               Final Exam, worth                  150 points

               Total                              600 points
I will also email periodic grade reports to those students who would like me to do so. I'll hand out forms the first day of class to find out who would like to receive these emailed reports.
