**Grading:**

Many in-class activities | = | 20% |

9 Homeworks | = | 20% |

Test 1 on Oct. 05 | = | 30% |

Test 2 on Nov. 09 | = | 30% |

Final (optional) on Dec. 14 from 8-11 am | = | 30% |

**Grade Distribution:**

97% -100% = A+ | 94% -96% = A | 90% -93% = A- | 87% -89% = B+ | 84% -86% = B | 80% -83% = B- |

77% -79% = C+ | 74% -76% = C | 70% -73% = C- | 67% -69% = D+ | 64% -66% = D | 60% -63% = D- |

0% -59% = F |

**Policies, Regulations, and Rules:**

- All homework papers are required to be stapled in the upper left-hand corner (failing to do so will result in a zero grade) and turned in before 2:00 pm. Homeworks will not be accepted late.
