Average and Passing Grades
This is to help you gauge your performance in the class.
Some of these averages reflect the grades prior to any changes that
are made and do not take into account my discretion regarding missed homework
or quizzes in some cases.
Note that your grade is computed as follows:
Exam 1 (100 pts),
Exam 2 (100 pts),
Exam 3 (100 pts),
Final Exam (200 pts),
Assignments (100 pts),
Quizzes (100 pts).
This comes to 700 pts total.

Final Course Grades
The breakdown of the final grades for the course
for R06 and R07 are as follows:
Numeric Range (%) |
80.0 and above
66.0 - 79.9
57.5 - 65.9
48.0 - 57.4
I am pleased that over 90% of the students in
R06 and R07 passed the course.
