Grading Procedure:Grades are based on the following formula:
Exams:There will be three 1-hour (evening) Exams with optional 30% partial credit for corrections, and one 2-hour Final. They will be based on the Lectures, Text, Quizzes and Homework.
Quizzes:Several un-announced quizzes will be given in lecture each week. The goal is to promote understanding and to assess progress.
Homework:There will be 12 assignments. Students may wish to use MSU's CAPA system to enter their homework solutions on the Internet, for which the standard due dates are Thursdays at 7:00 pm. Otherwise, solutions and assignment sheets are due at the start of the Thursday lecture.
The guaranteed scale (it may be lowered a little but not raised) is:Homework 30%
3 Hour Exams 30%

83 - 90% 3.5
76 - 83% 3.0
