```     First figure your homework grade.  Keep your returned HW papers

Your HW percentage is your total number of HW points divided by
the number of HW points which are possible.  If I have counted correctly,
there are 320 possible HW points for the first summer session.  However,
we will figure the final HW percentage out of only 280 points.  You
can't get more than 100% though, so once you have 280 points you don't
need to turn in any more HW, unless you just like to have your HW

As an example, say you have earned 249 HW points for the semester.

249/280  = 88.9%

HW is worth 10 points overall, so you would have earned 8.9 HW points.
We round all point calculations to the nearest tenth of a point.

90 HOMEWORK POINTS ARE REQUIRED FOR A PASSING GRADE
IN THE COURSE.  LESS THAN 90 HOMEWORK POINTS IS AN
AUTOMATIC E.

Now figure your quiz total.  We grade quizzes out of 10 points
and we take your best 12 of 16 quizzes.  Say your best 12 quizzes total up
to 94 points.  Your quiz average is then 94/12 = 7.8.  Quizzes are worth
10 points overall so your quiz points for the session are 7.8.

Now figure your test total.  In the summer there are four tests
in 2 parts each, for a total of 8 parts, or "halves".  Multiple Choice
halves are worth 60 points and Problem halves are worth 65 points.  You
may keep any three MC halves and any three Problems halves except that
you must keep at least one part of test 4, which serves the purpose of
an exam.  Your test average is the total of the six halves you keep,
divided by the total points possible for those six halves.  For example,
say these are your test scores:

TEST 1      TEST 2      TEST 3      TEST 4
MC   PROB   MC   PROB   MC   PROB   MC   PROB
45    56    40    38    45    52    30    54

With these scores you would want to drop TEST 2 PROBLEMS and TEST 4
MULTIPLE CHOICE.  Your test average would be:

(45 + 56 + 40 + 45 + 52 + 54)/375 = (292/375) = 0.7787 or 77.9%

Tests are worth 80 points overall, so your total test points are

80 * (0.7787) = 62.3 points

This makes your overall total 8.9 + 7.8 + 62.3 = 79.0.  What will

90 and above           A
80-90                  B
70-80                  C
60-70                  D
below 60               E

If the class average is 75 or higher, there is no change.  If the
class average falls below 75, I feel obliged to relax this scale
somewhat.  Look at

last year's web page
or  summer 2001 web page
or  summer 2000 web page
or  summer 1999 web page
or  summer 1998 web page
or  summer 1997 web page
or  summer 1996 web page

to get an idea for what this year's scale might be.
