Final grades in the course are distributed as follows:

B-: -------------
C: cccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc
D: dddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd
E: eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

12/09/16: Final results will be posted by 10 December. You will be able to see your raw total on the Blackboard site.
Once posted, grades are final. Exams have already been graded a second time for all students who are close to a letter grade or +/- difference.
Grades have been computed using the formula on the syllabus, taking into account any documented medical absences, and using the grades recorded on the Blackboard site.
If you were unable to pick up Homework 1, 2, or 3 or Midterm 1 or 2, there is no longer any way to do that. If you were unable to pick up Homework 4 or 5 and still want to, I will try to find a time when that is possible. I have no plans at this point for when that might be.
If you have a Homework 4 or Homework 5 for which the grade on your homework is not what is on the Blackboard site, send me a scan of the homework (all pages). Do not ask Randy or Ryan to regrade or process anything, because their teaching assistantships have ended for the semester.
Exam papers are not returned. You can view (not copy or take) your exam at one of my office hours in the first two weeks of classes in spring semester; if you wish to view your exam, email me a couple of days before your planned visit so that I can have the exam paper ready for you. This is not an opportunity to discuss the exam or your grade, but rather a chance to see for yourself what you wrote.
The academic integrity policy at ASU states that it is a violation when a student "attempts to influence or change any Academic Evaluation, assignment or academic record for reasons having no relevance to academic achievement." In particular, do not email me that you need or want a higher grade than the one assigned, or that there will be consequences for you that you do not like. Grades are never changed for this reason; grades only change because of calculation errors, and these are very rare.
I am not available to meet until the start of spring semester. If you email and the answer to your question is given here, you will be redirected back to this news posting.

12/06/16: Update: We are trying to have Randy's recitation section homeworks available for return, also at BY 455, from 1:00-2:00 today.

12/06/16: Homework 5 for Ryan's recitation sections will be available for pickup TODAY from 11:00 until 1:00 at BY 455. We are working on a way to get Homework 5 and the remaining Homework 4 returned for Randy's recitation sections, and will post that information when it is available.

12/05/16: Here is some information about completing the Scantron sheets at the final exam.
Guidelines for Students:

12/01/16: Office hours are NOT held after the end of lectures for the instructor or either of the TAs. Office hours for the instructor will commence again during the first week of lectures in spring semester.

12/01/16: Some students asked for a means to compare their performance with the other students in the class. So here is some information.

If you have medical documentation submitted, your total will not be computed correctly here. Note that Homeworks 4 and 5, and some recitation 14, are not included. The average is currently 62.4. However, please note that some of the lower test grades are likely to be replaced by the final exam grade, so the relative positions can change a lot.

11/20/16: A BlackBoard site has been set up just for students to check their grades. No other materials are there. If you believe that a grade has been recorded incorrectly, proceed as follows. YOU MUST HAVE THE ORIGINAL COPY OF THE GRADED WORK TO REPORT A CORRECTION. For recitation quizzes and for homework assignments, submit the original of the graded work to your TA. For midterm tests, submit the original to the instructor. THIS IS NOT AN OPPORTUNITY TO APPEAL A GRADE, but rather a chance to ensure that the assigned grade was correctly recorded.

11/16/16: Prof. Colbourn's office hour will not be held on 18 November.

11/09/16: Grades out of 14 on the multiple choice questions on midterm 2 are: 0 1 2 2 2 2 2 2 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 5 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 6 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 10 11 11 11 12 12 12 12 13

09/07/16: As announced in class: A notetaker is needed for this class. In exchange for providing this service, the selected notetaker will be paid a stipend of $25.00 per credit, i.e. total of $75 for a 3 credit class OR if preferred, awarded a letter of community service at the end of the semester. If you take clear, concise notes and are willing to share a copy, visit the DRC's web page and click on any of the DRC Connect links on the page and click "sign up as a notetaker". Prospective notetakers: Go to https://eoss.asu.edu/drc to access the DRC Connect web portal.
