**Your course grade will be based on: **

WebWork | Quizzes | Exam 1 | Exam 2 | Final Exam | Total |
---|---|---|---|---|---|

10% | 20% | 20% | 20% | 30% | 100% |

In addition, you must take the final examination in order to pass the course.

**Final grades will be determined by: **

4.0 Grade | 0.0 | 1.0 | 1.5 | 2.0 | 2.5 | 3.0 | 3.5 | 4.0 |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

% Grade | [0,55) | [55,60) | [60,65) | [65,73) | [73,80) | [80,85) | [85,90) | [90,100] |

This scale may be rescaled at the end of the semester to be more lenient. Such a rescaling is at the discretion of the calculus coordinator and instructor.

To help take into consideration students who progress throughout the semester the lowest exam percentage score can be replaced with average of their final exam percentage score and their lowest exam percentage score. Please see the example below.

**Example:** My exam scores are 50% on Exam 1, 60% on Exam 2, but I study extra hard and master
more of the material and get a 90% on the Final Exam.
Since my final exam score is higher than the lowest of my two midterm exams my lowest exam (Exam 1) would get replaced with (50%+90%)/2 = 70%.
When the final grades are calculated the scores used would be 70% for Exam 1, 60% for Exam 2, and 90% on the Final Exam.

- This policy will not lower your exam scores. In the case where you do worse on the final than on both midterm exams this policy would just not apply.
- You do not have to opt in to this policy. All student grades will automatically take this into consideration.

WeBWorK Homework will be done online at http://www.math.msu.edu/webwork. There is a $40 WeBWorK fee that must be paid. Instructions for payment and payment due date are available on the WeBWorK website.

See each assignment on the WeBWorK website for its actual due date. The WeBWorK tutorial is mandatory to do many of the other sets but does not explicitly count towards your overall grade. Start working on WeBWorK homework for each section immediately after that section is covered.

In addition to the WeBWorK homework there is a special WeBWorK assignment: `**Drop-Date-Review**'.

**Drop-Date-Review Due Date**: near the drop date with 100% refund**Drop-Date-Review Special Rules**: Do not use tutors / books / notes / friends to aid you on this assignment. This is a 60 minute timed assessment that you can take as many times as you would like. It contains representative set of problems up to this point in the course. Students who score poorly on this assignment (60% or less) should speak with their instructor or advisor to develop a plan moving forward.**Drop-Date-Review Grade**: This assignment counts towards the 10% of your overall course grade, similar to any other WeBWorK homework. Your score will be the maximum of your attempts.

There are special "Achievement Items" that are available in WeBWorK and described in the tutorials. Make sure that you have
used all of your achievement items by the "**Classes End**" date on
the registrar's site. Items used after this
will not be counted in your overall grade calculation.

There will be up to 14 weekly in-class quizzes throughout the semester. Your instructor will announce your section’s quiz dates/schedule in class. The two lowest quiz scores will be dropped
and the remaining will be scaled to 20% of your final grade. Exams are scheduled for **Monday February 19th** and
**Monday April 9th** during **7:45 PM - 9:15 PM**. The location of the exams will be
posted HERE when available.
Familiarize yourself with the attendance policies for the quizzes and the exams.

**Grading: **If you suspect a quiz or exam has been incorrectly graded please return it to your instructor within one week of receiving it back. After this no grade changes can be made. In addition, it is the
responsibility of the student to retain all handed back material in case of any questions or concerns including grade computations.

The Final Exam is scheduled for: **Tuesday, May 1st, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM**.

The location of the final exam will be announced in class at a later date and will be posted HERE when it is available. All students are required to take the Common Final Exam. The university has strict requirements for exceptions. The dates for the exams are fixed. The final exam is cumulative. The exam will be closed book and closed note. Note that travel is not a sufficient excuse to have an exam scheduled on a different day.

There are two surveys during the semester to help the department gain a better understanding of
its student population. The **initial course survey** must be completed in the first two weeks
of class. The **post course survey** will be available during the last two weeks of class.
The URL to the surveys and due dates/times will be posted on the main page
when available. Completeing each survey will help round up your course percentage if it is near
a grade border.

**Example:** Suppose your course grade is a 89.8% which is technically a 3.5.
By doing the course surveys this would be rounded up to a 4.0.

Note: that the round-up surveys are not worth a specific number of points. Depending on the difficulty of exams and grade distributions their value will be set at the end of the semester. However, they will be worth at least 0.25% each to truly "round up" to the nearest percentage.
