UMBC, CMSC202 Computer Science II, Spring 2007
Your grade for this course will be based on 5 programming projects,
2 midterm exams, the final exam and on grades from the discussion
sections (see below). The weighting of these scores are:
| Discussion: || 1 point || x 12 = || 12 points |
| Projects: || 7 points || x 5 = || 35 points |
| Midterm Exams: || 15 points || x 2 = || 30 points |
| Final Exam: || 23 points || x 1 = || 23 points |
Your final letter grade is based on the standard formula:
0 ≤ F < 60,
60 ≤ D < 70,
70 ≤ C < 80,
80 ≤ B < 90,
90 ≤ A ≤ 100.
Your grade might be curved upward, but under no circumstance will your
grade be curved downward. Your grade is given for timely work done during
the semester; incomplete grades will only be given for medical illness or
other such dire circumstances.
Discussion Section Grades
Attendance and participation in the discussion section is required.
After each meeting, each student will be assigned a grade by the
teaching assistant. This grade will be on a 10-point scale reflecting the
student's attendance, participation in the discussion and completion of the
lab exercise. Since 14 meetings of the discussion sections have been
scheduled (see list of lab exercises), it is
possible to earn 2 points of extra credit from the discussions.
However, if one or two discussion sections are canceled due to
inclement weather, those points will not be made up. (I.e., you cannot
earn extra credit from snow days.)
