The final Physics
1403 course grade is determined as follows:

1. Quiz Average: First, calculate your Quiz Average
as a percentage. (I realize that I haven't returned
many graded quizzes to you. I'm sorry. I'll have them graded &
returned before our final exam). We've had 8 quizzes, each
worth a maximum
of 20 points. Call them QQ =
[(100)/(160)]*(Q_{1} + Q_{2} + Q_{3 }+
Q_{4 }+ Q_{5} + Q_{6} + Q_{7 }+
Q_{8 }+ EP)
(1)

2. Homework Average: Next, calculate your Homework Average as a percentage. This should be available to you from Mastering Physics. We've had 15 homework sets, but the first one was for practice & doesn't count in your grade. Call the remaining 14 homework sets H

H = [(1)/(15)]*(H_{1} + H_{2} + H_{3
} + H_{4
}+ H_{5} + H_{6} + H_{7} + H_{8}
+ H_{9} + H_{10} + H_{11}
+ H_{12} + H_{13} + H_{14} + Q) (2)

3. Lecture Average: Next, calculate your Lecture Average. From the

L = (0.2)*(H + EI + EII + EIII + EF + EF- EL)
(3)

4. Lab Average: I obtain your Lab Average (call it LA) as a percentage from your TA.

5. Course Average: Next, calculate your Course Average (call it G). From the

G = (0.8)*L
+
(0.2)*LA
(4)

6. Letter Grade: The Letter Grade given for the final grade numerical score G from Equation (4) will be according to the scale in the
