Your grade for this course will consist of:
  1. two midterm exams, 2 x 100 points
  2. one final exam, 200 points.
for a total of 400 points, A > 89.5 %, B > 79.5 %, C > 69.5 %, D > 59.5 % of these points.

Extra-credit will be given for answering in-class questions through the class-response system.  A point for correct answers, 1/2 a point for isomeric or incorrect text answer which are not non-sense.  I reserve the right to turn off the class-response system for any students that attempt to answer questions without being present!
