14.5.2. See "How to Compute Your Grade".

14.6. What if I Miss a Lab or Quiz?

14.6.1. See "How to Compute Your Grade"

14.7. How to Compute Your Grade

14.7.1. Your grade maxes out at 90 points. The 10 points are free extra credit points that is given to all of you at the beginning of class that make up for missed quizzes or labs or any other random acts of life. If your final grade is on the edge of a letter grade do not ask for any extra credit work. None will be given as you already have 10 free extra points.

14.7.2. The full grade scale is therefore as follows:

14.7.3. A+ = 90/100

14.7.4. A = 85/100

14.7.5. A- = 80/100

14.7.6. B+ = 75/100

14.7.7. B = 70/100

14.7.8. B- = 65/100

14.7.9. C+ = 60/100

14.7.10. C = 55/100

14.7.11. C- = 50/100

14.7.12. D+ = 45/100

14.7.13. D = 40/100

14.7.14. D- = 35/100

14.7.15. F = Anything below a D-
