Grading (draft)


Grading is either (1/3 project, 2/9 midterm, 4/9 final) or (1/3 project, 1/6 first midterm, 1/6 second midterm, 1/3 final exam). Class performance on the first midterm will determine whether there is a second midterm. Grading of the project is dominated by the quality of the final turn in, not the intermediates, but people who do not turn in intermediate stages tend to not turn in good projects at the end of term, since they denied themselves the chance for feedback and improvement, and get no sympathy.
Doing weekly assigned homework is the best way to improve your performance in exams!
