## Announcements

As you know, the final exam was rather hard and the average score of this
exam is significantly lower than the means of the midterms (at least,
based on early returns -- the current score range is 29 to 90 and the current
mean is in the mid 60s). The grades will be assigned based upon a curve
(or the usual absolute scale in the unlikely event that this scale produces
higher grades).

Old announcements are archived.

## Grading

Three separate schemes are used to compute your course grade. The best of
these three grades is assigned as your course grade. In each case, I
compute a score for each student and rank all the students. A grade (for each
method of score computation) is assigned based on class rank.

With the first method your score is computed as 10% of your quiz score, 25%
of each of your midterm scores and 40% of your final exam score. With the second
method, your first midterm score is dropped entirely and your score is computed as
10% of the quiz score, 40% of your second midterm score and 50% of your final exam score.
With the last method, your second midterm score is dropped and your score is
10% of your quiz score, 40% of your first midterm score, and 50% of your final exam
score.

Your lowest quiz score will be dropped.
