### Curve?

So the syllabus says that a 50% is required o pass the class with at least a C- but at the same time, "there's no curve" is what I've been hearing from most students so if I have a 75% in the class it'll remain the same but if I get a 50% it'll jump up to 70%?

Note that the syllabus says, "Each test and exam has a total score but is not assigned a grade. Only at the end of the class when the class average score (out of 500 points) is known are final grades assigned. This class does not use a curve." Your final grade will be determined at the end of the course, when the class average is known.

Does that line in the syllabus also mean that anyone who receives over 50% of the points will pass?

As of now with what he stated in the syllabus, if you were to receive about 250/500 points, you will pass the class with a C-, so if you have a 75%, then that means it might average up to a B or B+, depending as the student above said, on the class average. This what is some people in the class were saying when I asked them this question. :) hope this helped.

Yes, this means that as long as students get 50% (250/500 points), they will pass the class with a C- (:

Last quarter w Lavelle, same grading system, I ended with 344/500 and that resulted in a C. I think it depends on the class averages.

Yes, it is all just based on the class average so technically there is no curve.
