Math 410 Grading Policies, Fall 2009
Your course grade will be based on the sum of your scores on
your two inclass exams (maximum of 100 points each)
 200 points (40%)

your Final Exam (maximum of 200 points)
 200 points (40%)

your 10 best homework scores (maximum of 10 points each)
 100 points (20%)

The maximum total score possible for the course is 500 points.
The point cutoffs for course grades will be no higher (and will most
likely be lower) than those set forth in the following table:
450 points (90%) for a grade of ``A'';
400 points (80%) for a grade of ``B'';
350 points (70%) for a grade of ``C'';
300 points (60%) for a grade of ``D''.
Pluses and Minuses will be awarded to those whose point total is close
to a cutoff. Qualitative factors such as your class participation
will also be taken into account when determining your course grade.
The course grade of ``I'' will be awarded only if all the following
conditions are met:
 You have completed all but a small portion of the required work.
 You have an average grade of ``D'' or better on the work completed.
 You have a valid reason for not completing the course on time.
 You agree to make up the material within a short period of time.
 You ask for the incomplete no later than the day after the final
exam.
