Grade Policy

Physics 235, Fall 2004


The final grade you earn is the weighted average of:

1.   Final exam (30%)

2.   2 Mid-term exams (20% each, 40% total)

3.   Homework (20 %)

4.   Final Project (10 %)

I do not grade on a curve.  Why should I assume that x% of you will be failing this course?  If you all do an excellent job, you all deserve an A.  If you all do a poor job, you all deserve to fail.  How well your neighbor is doing should not affect your grade!  In the table below I have listed the grading table I will be using in this course.
