The final grade for the course will be based on the homework assignment scores, the final project and your attitude in class. The final project is worth 100 points, each assignment is worthy 20 points, and the maximum score for attitude is 10. The final projects contributes 60%, the average for the assignments contributes 30%, and the score for attitude contributes 10%. The overall average score (X) for the course is determined as follows:
X =0.60x(Final Project score) + 0.3x(Average Homework Assignment score) + 0.10x(attitude/participation/attendance score)
The final letter grade for the course is based on the value of X and is determined from to the following grade levels:
Value of X (in %) 90-100 80-89 70-79 60-69 <60
Letter Grade A B C D F
