Your grade will be based on the average of five 100-point unit exams and a 100-point
final exam.
1. You may be excused from taking the final comprehensive exam only if your
average is 75 or higher on the 5 class exams. In this case your grade will be the
average of the five exams.
2. If you take the final exam, even if you are exempt from taking it, then your final
grade will be computed by averaging six grades (five exams and the final exam),
where the final exam may be substituted for your lowest grade on one of the 5 class
exams as well as counting as a final.
3. If you miss an exam, you must take the final exam.

You may request a grade of I (incomplete) only if you are passing the class and have
completed the course past the last date to drop the course with a W.
A: minimum A = 90 percent
B: minimum B = 75 percent
C: minimum C = 65 percent
D: minimum D = 45 percent
F: less than 45 percent

Each week we will have one or two quizzes, from which you can get points. These points
will be added to your total points.
