2 Midterms (25% ea.)
:    50%
Final Project
___________________
Total
:    25%
     ____
:   100%

Your grade will be based on a straight curve: A = 93-100, A- = 90-93, B+ = 88-90, B = 83-88, B- = 80-83, C+ = 78-80, C = 70-78, D = 60-70, F = 0-60.

 

Homework

Homework will be assigned from the textbook as stated in class. Please write neatly and attach your pages before you come to class. Homework is an integral part of the course and should be done as such. Homework will be collected on the dates specified in class.
