COURSE GRADING:
Course grades will be based on the total points accumulated from 4 exams (50 points each = 200).Additional points are available by completing the 4 Textbook Review Question Blocks (10 points each= 40) and completing the 4 on-line lab assignment blocks (10 points each = 40). Grades will beassigned on the basis of the following percentage scores out of a possible total of 280 pts (i.e., earnedpoints/total points x 100=%):Final course letter grades translate from the course work percentage table belowA+ 98.0% - 100%, A 94.0% - 97.9%, A- 90.0% - 93.9%B+ 87.0% - 89.9%, B 84.0% - 86.9%, B- 80.0% - 83.9%C+ 77.0% - 79.9%, C 74.0% - 76.9%, C- 70.0% - 73.9%D+ 67.0% - 69.9%, D 64.0% - 66.9%, D- 60.0% - 63.9%F below 59.9%
