Announcements


Course Grades were submitted on Fri., Dec. 12, and should be available soon. For those who took the optional Final Exam, your exam score is posted on eGradebook and the "GRADE TO DATE" score has been updated. The formula to compute this quantity is still: (A) Exam Average (best three of four exams), (B) Homework Average (best five of seven homeworks), and (C) Participation Total (in points, but no more than 10). Then GRADE TO DATE = (A*75/100) + (B*15/40) + C. The letter grade for a given score is shown on the Table on the Exams & Grading page.

Have a nice Winter Break!
