We have a quiz and a homework graded every week, about 50 pts a week.
Three midterms in class are given, about 75 pts each. Extra pts are given for

Here are lower limits for other grades:

B 80 %,
B-  76 2/3 %,
C+ 73 1/3 %,

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

Late homework is accepted and partial credit for late homework is given (until graded papers are returned).
Computers, books, notes are allowed during tests, but no joint work.
No points are given after classes are over.
