CALCULATING YOUR FINAL GRADE Your quiz + your midterm: max. 100 points Your quiz + your final: max. 100 points Your 2 papers: max. 2 x 50 points = max. 100 points All these points will be added up and divided by 3. From that number will be deducted your penalties for excessive absences, and your extra credit points (max.4) will be added. In borderline cases your class participation will determine your ultimate final grade.
CLASS PARTICIPATION Step 1: All your points will be added up, and divided by 3. From that number will be subtracted penalties for your excessive absences (-1 point per 2 absences above 3), and your max. 4 extra credit points will be added. Step 2: That number will be evaluated in terms of your class participation. If your grade is borderline (59.0-59.4, 69.0-69.4, 79.0-79.4 or 89.0- 89.4), and you have been actively participating in class, it may be upgraded.
