Homework for this week: There will be weekly homework assignments in this course. Homework is due on the Monday of the following week at 9:45, in class, before class starts.
You can view your grades through the Stars system.
In order to get a D grade from this course, a student must show an overall achievement level of %. An important part of this achievement must be accumulated through regular studying, before taking the final exam. The student must demonstrate this by accumulating sufficient pre-final points from the first and second exams such that the overall average will be over % even if the remaining assessment grades (i.e. Homework+Quiz+Final) average to less than or equal to twice this pre-final grade. (Also, see below for the attendance requirement.)
Therefore a student cannot get a D grade if the pre-final achivement level is below % from the first and second exams.
This means, a student will receive the FZ grade (and will not be able to take the final exam) if the average is lower than % from the first and second exams! (If the average is %, the student will need to receive at least twice that: , from the remaining assesments (Homework+Quiz+Final) to get a D grade - attendance is extra credit - but it may also go negative! If you miss more than 6 hours of lectures, you will need to compensate that by assignments which will take much longer time to do, or you will get an FZ.)
