GRADING INFORMATION:

The grading format is as follows:

  • Homework Average = 10%
  • Quiz Average = 15%
  • Course Exams 1 and 2 = 20% each (40% total), (Note: The lower of the two course exam percentages will be replaced by the final exam percentage if the final exam percentage is higher.)
  • Final Exam = 35%
  • Practice Exam Average = 5% Bonus

Note: Grading calculations are done automatically in Hawkes.

You can do hypothetical grade simulations with the following formula:

Course Average = 0.1*(Homework Avg) + 0.15*(Quiz Avg) + 0.2*(Course Exam 1) + 0.2*(Course Exam 2) + 0.35*(Final Exam) + 0.05*(Practice Exam Avg)

Remember, in the formula above, the lower of the two course exam grades will be replaced by the final exam grade--if the final exam grade is higher (thus the final has the potential to be worth 55% of your overall grade).

FAILURE TO TAKE THE FINAL EXAM WILL RESULT IN FAILURE OF THE COURSE
