Grade Scales, Averages and Semester Grades
There will be four hour exams. (After each exam I
will post here the grade scale, grade distribution
and median score on the exam.) In addition, there will be periodic quizzes,
a two part project, the Gateway Exam and the Final Exam. Your Semester Grade
will be determined by averaging your grades on these items with the following
3 hour exams worth 100 points each
recitation quiz average worth 100 points
project, parts A and B, worth 20 and 30 points
Gateway Exam worth 50 points
Final Exam worth 200 points
Total 700 points
Here is some information about the exam and semester grades.
The grade scales:
Total A B C D Median
Exam 1: 50 43 36 29 22 34
Exam 2: 50 43 36 29 22 34
Exam 3: 50 43 36 29 22 25
Final: 200 170 145 120 100 127 (including all sections of M106)
The number of As, Bs, etc.:
A B C D F
Exam 1: 7 10 18 10 2
Exam 2: 10 11 14 7 5
Exam 3: 1 5 9 14 17
Final: 36 60 83 53 67 (including all sections of M106)
Semester: 2 11 18 12 10
Note: To give everyone a chance to raise their score
on the exam, I'll put an extra credit problem on exam 2.
I'll take this problem verbatim from exam 1, except I'll
change some of the numbers. Whatever points you earn on this
extra credit problem will be added to your original score
on exam 1, which will then be rescaled according to the
same scale used before. Thus if you had a 35 on exam 1 and
earn 3 points extra credit, your new exam 1 score would be
38, which scales to 83%.
