GRADING: Your final grade will be based on your Term mark (50%) and common Final Exam (50%) for all sections. You must have a passing Term mark and pass the Final Exam to pass this course. No notes, books or calculators will be allowed for the Midterms or the Final Exam. Midterms: There will be two Midterms approximately based on weeks 1-4 and weeks 4-9. See you Section's website for the exact time and location of your Midterms. The Midterms will worth approximately 40% of your overall grade. See your Section for details.
