Homework and quiz scores have been brought up to date on Blackboard. We've had 6 homework assignments and 3 quizzes graded for 19.5 and 21 points, respectively. (Recall that with 1 cancelled homework assignment, each is worth 3.25 points.) So, the total number of points obtainable is 19.5 + 21 = 40.5 points. You can look at the Weighted Total column of your grades and compare it against 36.45, 32.40 and 28.35, which are 90%, 80% and 70% of 40.5 points.
