Grading and Homework Policy

Grades will be computed using the following weights.

  • 25% Homework
  • 15% Quizzes (3x5%)
  • 30% Midterm Exams (2x15%)
  • 30% Final Exam

Grades are assigned using the following standard ranges, after rounding.

≥ 93% = A 90–92% = A-
87–89% = B+ 83–86% = B 80–82% = B-
77–79% = C+ 73–76% = C 70–72% = C-
60–69% = D
≤ 59% = F

Overall grades will not be curved. However, scores on individual quizzes and exams may occasionally be adjusted upward by a constant factor for the entire class.

All quizzes and exams are closed book and closed notes.

Teamwork on homework is allowed and encouraged. Teams of two or three students may submit a common homework so long as all members are clearly identified on the submission. All students in a team must contribute to a team solution and will receive the same grade. Adding the name of a student who has not contributed to a solution will be regarded as cheating. All team members must be able to explain their homework contribution to the instructor.

Please note that late homework is not accepted. Be sure to submit your assignment on time!
