Your final letter grade will be determined by your average score.   There are two ways you can achieve each letter grade.  For each student, I use whichever method gives the highest letter grade. 

       Method #1 (“Minimum Score”)       Method #2 (“Class Rank” ) 

       for attaining this grade           for attaining this grade 

       is an average score of…             is an average score…


  A       93.0 or higher                  in the top 20% of the class

  A-       90.0 – 92.9                     in the top 29 % of the class

  B+       85.0 – 89.9                      in the top 45% of the class

  B       80.0 – 84.9                     in the top 60% of the class

  B-       75.0 – 79.9                      in the top 69% of the class

  C+       70.0 – 74.9                      in the top 79% of the class

  C       60.0 – 69.9                      in the top 89% of the class

  C-    55.0 – 59.9                     in the top 91% of the class

  D       50.0 – 54.9                     in the top 95% of the class

  F        below 50.0            

To make sure you understand: The scores in each column are sufficient, but not necessary, to get the associated grade.  For example, every student in the top 20% will earn an “A” even if his/her average score is less than 93.0.  And every student with an average score of 93.0 or better will get an “A” even that is more than 20% of the class. I know that grades are important to students. I do everything I can to treat everyone fairly. But in this course, grades are based solely on the average score for the assigned work and exams; no extra credit or additional work will be offered, and grades cannot be negotiated.
