EACH TERM GRADE:
Add up all the points you've earned and divide them by the total number of
points possible. Your term averages are a straight forward
percentage. Nothing is weighted. If a test has ten questions it is
worth ten points, if a test has twenty questions it is worth twenty points, if
it has thirty questions, it is worth thirty points. Most labs will be
scored out of ten to twenty points depending on the length of the writeup.
Homework will be checked at random. Homework assignments may be
collected to count for pop quiz scores.
