Grade Calculations

I try to keep to the spirit of the grading documented in the syllabus. That means this is how the final grade will be calculated:

  • Homework (2 @ 10 points each) (4%)
  • Labs (9 @ 30 points each) (46%)
  • Group Project (1 @ 100 points each) (15%)
  • Exams (2 @ 150 points each) (30%)
  • Attendance (100 points) (5%)

The total points you will see on Blackboard equals 790. My gradebook is an Excel spreadsheet that does these calculations. I make sure the points add up to exactly what you see on Blackboard, but you cannot calculate your grade based on that Blackboard total alone. The weighting figures in as well.
