Requests for a make-up quizzes or exams require a serious
documentation and are (almost) never granted. Please plan
accordingly. I will drop the lowest homework and quiz scores.
Grade: The formula for the course grade is roughly
There is no plan for a curve.
However, if you do significantly better on the final than your course
average grade, I will take that into account.
final exam = 35 %
2 midterms at 20 % each = 40%
homework, quizzes = 25%
