Respect academic integrity! Cheating may seem an easy way out, but in the long run, it really hurts you more than anyone else. You end up not learning what you should learn, and it does something to your character, to your self-image. Cheating is not worth it. Please review these notes on integrity.
Course Grade Computation
Below is a list of the percentage of the total score that is allocated to each component of the course —these percentages may change as the semester moves on, depending on how many assignments and quizzes we actually have.
Prelim 1: 13%
Everyone is expected to do every lab, and labs don't count in the total score. Two labs may be missed —any more unexcused absences and the course grade may be reduced (e.g. B goes to B-).
A typical distribution for final grades is 25% A, 35% B, 35% C, 5% D or F. However, that is only a typical, average, distribution, and it is not what we expect. Anyone who does A work will get an A, and you are all capable of doing that! We would like that!
If you feel that the graders have incorrectly graded an exam or hand-written assignment:
