Weekly Homework (7 pts per week) 70 pts
Weekly Online Discussion (3 pts per week) 30 pts
Three Discussion Section Tests (3 x 40 minutes) 120 pts
Two Hour Midterm (110 minutes) 110 pts
Three Hour Final (170 minutes) 170 pts
I think the final grades will be curbed based on the averages for the midterms, quizzes, and finals. So if the average for the midterm was an 83, the highest score would probably set this curve and anyone below this would actually have gotten less than what they got.
Its based off of a point system overall, but there is a note on the syllabus that says a 50% is a C- (which would typically be a 70%), so I think the class is curved overall to the letter grade at the end. I'm assuming it can only help and not hurt you because its not a competetive scaling or anything.
