### Announcements

• [5/22/10] The contributions to your total are: 15% writtens, 30% projects, 20% midterm, 35% final. (Up to 2% extra credit based on class participation. Extra credit was also added to some students' final scores based upon final contest results.) To compute your semester total, you can use the following formula: total = (.01*P0/2+.15/7*W1/21+.29/5*P1/20+.15/7*W2/22+.29/5*P2/20+.15/7*W3/18+.29/5*P3/25+.15/7*W4/25+.2*M/100+.15/7*W5/20+.15/7*W6/16+.29/5*P4/25+.15/7*W7/23+.29/5*P5/25+.35*F/100)*100; After setting P0,P1,P2,P3,P4,P5 to your project scores, W1,W2,W3,W4,W5,W6,W6 to your written scores, M to your midterm score, and F to your final score. Mean: 70.24, median: 72.27, std: 11.47, max: 95.19, histogram. The fixed scale cut-offs for grades ended up resulting in rather low grades, so we adjusted the cut-offs to A+: 95, A:81.84; A-:77.12; B+: 72.27; B: 67.07; ; B-: 64.45; C+: 57.85; C: 52.8; C-: 40; D+: 35; D: 30.
