Counting towards your final grade will be quizzes (approx. one per week), two exams, one cumulative final exam, and computer assignments. Homework will be assigned but not collected. It is strongly recommended that you do complete the homework assignments as you will find them in the quizzes and exams.
Your final grade will be calculated as follows:
(*) The two worst quiz scores will be dropped automatically
