Students risk their academic integrity when they ask for a grade other than the grade they earned in the class. Do NOT ask Dr. BE to change your grade. Do NOT ask for extra credit to improve your grade. All opportunities for extra credit and grade improvement will be offered equally to all students. Grading Scale
*Students’ final course grade is rounded-up for .5 and above. For example a 92.5% would become a 93% (A) after rounding-up. Note that a .49 does not equal a .5. If you receive a 92.49% you will receive an A-. Grading Scale

((student pts/clicker total pts) * .10) + ((student pts/paper total pts) * .10) + ((student pts/midterm one total pts) * . 20) + ((student pts/midterm two total pts) * .20) + ((student pts/final total pts) * .40) Example: A student receives 9 pts on her clicker assignment, 50 pts on her paper, 25 pts on her midterm, 23 pts on her midterm two and 60 points on her final.
((9/10) * .10) + ((50/50) * .10) +...
