## 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.

Individual grade information is available on Canvas.
