## Grade Information for Math 370

The grades in Math 370 were assigned based on the student's performance on the exams (40%), problem sets (40%), and participation (20%). The computation was done by taking a weighted grade point average of these three components (with weights .4, .4, .2). The grades on these components were computed from the raw scores as follows:

Exams (out of 200; sum of the scores on the two midterms and the final):

• 194-200: A+
• 177-193: A
• 165-176: A-
• 145-164: B+
• 130-144: B
• 117-129: B-
• 111-116: B-/C+
• 96-110: C+
• 90-95: C+/C
• 80-89: C

Problem sets (out of 156; sum of the scores on the best 13 assignments):

• 146-156: A+
• 137-145.5: A
• 134-136.5: A-
• 126-133.5: B+
• 108-125.5: B
• 90-107.5: B-

Participation (out of 39; up to 3 points for each of 13 labs, based on attendance, class discussion, and presentations):

• 38-39: A+
• 33-37: A
• 30-32: A-
• 26-29: B+
• 21-25: B
• 17-20: B-

Weighted grade point averages that were equidistant from two grades were rounded up to the next letter grade (e.g. a weighted average of 3.15 became a grade of B+). Those that were just under a cut-off were rounded up if the student received extra credit for the sample final exam.
