# Physics 141, Fall 2016.

The final grade you earn is the weighted average of:

1. Final exam (20 - 25%)
2. 3 Mid-term exams (15 - 20% each)
3. Homework (15%)
4. Lab (15%)
5. Quizzes (5%)

I will calculate the final grade in 4 different ways:

 Exam 1 Exam 2 Exam 3 Final Homework Lab Quizzes 1 15% 15% 15% 20% 15% 15% 5% 2 --- 20% 20% 25% 15% 15% 5% 3 20% --- 20% 25% 15% 15% 5% 4 20% 20% --- 25% 15% 15% 5%

The final grade is based on the highest grade calculated using the 4 different methods outlined above.
I do not grade on a curve. Why should I assume that x% of you will be failing this course? If you all do an excellent job, you all deserve an A. If you all do a poor job, you all deserve to fail. How well your neighbor is doing should not affect your grade! In the table below I have listed the grading table I will be using in this course.

 score < 30% : F 55% ≤ score < 60% : C+ 30% ≤ score < 35% : D- 60% ≤ score < 65% : B- 35% ≤ score < 40% : D 65% ≤ score < 70% : B 40% ≤ score < 45% : D+ 70% ≤ score < 75% : B+ 45% ≤ score < 50% : C- 75% ≤ score < 80% : A- 50% ≤ score < 55% : C 80% ≤ score : A
