New [3/9/08]: Overall grade and curving. The display now shows your current grade in this class, with curving taken into account. The curve used is an overall curve with cutoffs of 86/72/56/40 percent for A/B/C/D, instead of the standard 90/80/70/60 percent scale. If the semester were to end here, this is the curve that would determine your grade. After each test, I will re-evaluate the curve, and may make small adjustments, depending on the overall score distribution after the test. (Note that the curving is performed on the overall average; no additional curving is done on the individual hw/quiz/exam scores.)
