Grading: The letter grade will be determined from the total numeric grade as follows:
Letter Grade A+ A A- B+ B B- C+ C C- D+ D D- F
Total Numeric Grade >= 97.00 >= 93.00 >= 90.00 >= 87.00 >= 83.00 >= 80.00 >= 77.00 >= 73.00 >= 70.00 >= 67.00 >= 63.00 >= 60.00 < 60.00

The total numeric grade will be the sum of several numeric grades as follows:
Type Test 1 Test 2 Test 3 Test 4 Maple Attendance Total
Max Numeric grade 21.5 21.5 21.5 21.5 10 4 100

The attendance grade is calculated as "4 * the number of attended classes / the total number of classes".
(Officially excused absence will be counted toward attended classes).
Seats will be assigned at the beginning of the semester.
Instructor will not provide extra-help on missed lectures, unless there is an official excuse.
