Grading / Evaluation: The course grade will be determined as follows:
Homework 20%
Three Tests 45%
Quizzes 10%
Comprehensive final exam: 25%


Use of calculators and Hawkes printed formula sheets and tables is allowed while taking tests,
with this exception: parts of the tests will be Calculator-Free.

Grades assigned according the following scale: 90-100 A or A-
80-89 B+, B, or B-
70-79 C+, C, or C-
60-69 D+ or D
Less than 60 F


Note: Absolutely no make-up tests will be given. If a student misses a test, then the instructor will
assign a zero for the missed test score. With approved documented justification from the student, the
instructor will record the students final exam grade in place of the missed test score; otherwise, the zero
score will remain. This arrangement is only available once per student per class. Everyone must take the
final exam. There are no opportunities for extra credit work for grade enhancement purposes.
