No spitting over the balcony! - Grading policy:

Homework is worth one point.

Attendance is worth one point.

Quizzes are worth on the order of 5 to 10 points each.

Activity and laboratory work is worth a variable number of points.

Tests are worth on the order of 20 to 30 points.

The midterm is worth roughly 40 points.

The final is worth up to roughly 60 points.

The term as a whole will generate some 300 plus points.

Grading is based on the standard College policy: Obtain 90% of the points or more to obtain an A, 80% to 89% for a B, and so forth.
