Goals: Grades: Your grade will be based on weekly homework, 3 in-class hour exams, and a comprehensive final, with the weights as shown below. Your lowest hour exam will be replaced by your homework average if the latter is higher. (This would effectively double the weight of the homework, and reflects how important the homework is in getting the most out of this course!)
        homework          1/6
        hour exams        1/6 each for a total of 1/2
        final             1/3
        Total            100%
