GRADING

Everyone starts with an A, however, maintaining that ''A'' will require some work on your part; I do not expect a certain percentage of ''A'' or ''F'' grades. I do not curve grades and therefore each of you are not competing against each other. This will, I hope, encourage you to work together on studying, discussing your ideas, and learning from each other. I do not drop any tests or assignments.

TOTAL POINTS FOR THE COURSE ARE 1000.

The grading scale is 90%+ A, 80%+ B, 70%+ C, 60%+D.
