*Note: The lowest of these will be dropped and replaced by the average of the final-- (your points / 165) x 100


FINAL LECTURE TOTAL  =__________ (ADD THE 9 ABOVE; OUT OF 716 PTS)

GRADE=__________

Grade Cutoffs from Syllabus:

A 716-644 B 643-573 C 572-501 D 500-430 F 429- 0

Note: These are the cutoffs that guarantee you getting each letter grade. The cutoffs may be lowered at the end of the semester. I like to lower them 1-2 exam questions to take care of students 1-2 questions from the next letter grade, but don't publicize the new cutoffs since a new set of students will be 1-2 exams questions from the next letter grade. Many semesters, these don't move at all. Your curve is in getting to replace an exam, only counting 5 of 7 assignments, etc. Every point does make a difference.
