IN-CLASS EXAMS (Exams 1, 2, 3, 4)
There are four in-class exams. For dates, see Schedule.
FINAL PERIOD EXAMS (Exams 5, 6)
In addition to the four regular-period exams, there will be two one-hour exams to take place during the officially scheduled final exam period. See Schedule.
Exam #5 is very similar to Exam #3.
Exam #6 is very similar to Exam #4.
FOUR HIGHEST SCORES
In calculating your final numerical score, I use your four highest scores. A missed exam counts as a zero.
MAKE-UP EXAMS
Make-up exams are available for officially approved absences.
USING EXAMS 5 and 6 TO IMPROVE YOUR GRADE
Besides serving as make-up exams, Exams 5 and 6 can be used to improve your grade, in case you are not satisfied with your grade after the first four exams. Note that there is no risk in taking these optional exams.
FINAL LETTER GRADE
There are six total exams, each worth 100 points. Your four highest exam scores are used, so the maximum total score is 400. Your final letter grade is computed on the basis of your total numerical score, according to the following scale.
