Sunday, December 18: Final grades are now available. The "Final Semester Score" on MyMathLab includes everything -- homework (15%), three tests (15% each), final exam (40%), the improvement bonus, and the extra credit assignment. Official grades will be available on KYou either tomorrow or Tuesday.

Additional information:

Friday, December 16: I have just posted the scores on the final exam on MyMathLab. I decided to discard seven of the lowest-scoring problems and gave everyone an additional 20-point bonus (out of 400). The mean was 78.1%.

The "Overall Score" is your total for the semester. If this is at least 900, 800, 700, or 600 points, you have earned at least an A, B, C or D respectively.

We are still grading extra-credit assignments, so grades are not posted yet. Our priority is to grade the assignments submitted by students who are close to a grade line.
