We have a quiz and a homework graded every week, about 50 pts a week.

Three midterms in class are given, about 50 pts each. Extra pts are
given for

work in class. To get A, one has to get at least 90% of the sum of
maximal scores.

Here are lower limits for other grades:

A- 86 2/3 %,

B+ 83 1/3 %,

B 80 %,

B- 76 2/3 %,

C+ 73 1/3 %,

C 70%,

D 60%.

No make-ups are given for missing tests in class unless e-mail sent
to

before the class.

Partial credit for late homework is given.

Computers, books, notes are allowed during tests, but no joint work.

No points are given after classes are over.
**No cheating**
is tolerated.
