Exams and Grades
Grades will be based on four noncumulative exams (100 points each), and and four 25 point quizes, for a total of 500 points in the class.  I may assign homework and/or a project, and if I do the grade on the project (up to 100 points) would be added into the calculation above. Grades are based on the following scale:

89-92....... 3.7
85-88....... 3.3
80-84....... 3.0

65-69....... 2.0
60-64....... 1.7
55-59....... 1.3
50-54....... 1.0
< 50......... 0.0
