I will not post the answers to the end of chapter problems on the website under any circumstances.

Grading Policy and Scheme:

Grade point distribution (total 100 points): o Midterm Exam I (25%) o Midterm Exam II (30%) o Final Exam (45%) Overall grade of a student will be a simple summation of points she/he obtained in midterm and final exams (in case of fraction, grade point will be rounded to the nearest integer value before mapping to letter grade). Numerical/letter grade conversion:

A+ 93-100 A 8692.9 A- 8085.9

B+ 77-79.9 B 73-76.9 B- 70-72.9

C+ 67-69.9 D+ 57-59.9 C 63-66.9 D 53-56.9 C- 60-62.9 D- 50-52.9

F 3549.9 F- 0-34.9

Midterm test(s) which are missed for medical reasons and satisfactorily documented with the Office of the Associate Dean results in rescheduling the midterm examination for a later date. o In this case it is absolutely necessary to submit the documents immediately to the deans office, and contact me, since midterms are re-taken a week after. If your medical reason is still going to prevent you from taking the midterm at the new date, it is required to have your doctor confirm that you need more than one week of rest, submitted with the original documents to the deans office. If for any other reason, you missed the re-test, it is required to bring another doctors note, and contact me to setup another date for the midterm test. Midterm weights do not under any circumstance will be transferred to final exam.

If a student does not write the final exam, then she/he will be given zero for the final exam and a corresponding letter grade is calculated based on that. If a student is listed as a registered student but never appears in class, and has not attended study groups, or written exams, then assign F- or NR (No Report). The computer will assign F- for the grade NR.

Please note that in case of missing the final exam, you have to contact me for details on exam coverage. Final exam coverage may extend from cover to cover. Students who are unable to write a final examination(s) during the regularly scheduled time slot because of a conflict with religious conviction must apply to the Office of the Registrar to write an alternative examination(s). These students are required to apply for the alternative examination(s) in the course(s) involved by the end of the normal add/drop period for the session ... (date). The Registrars Office will reschedule the alternative examination(s) for those students in another slot(s) within the regularly scheduled examination period. Students who have requested alternative examinations will receive an amended examination schedule. Application Form for Alternative Final Exam Due to Conflict with Religious Convictions is available on the SIS.
