Grades will be based on performance on a number of measurements. It is important that you participate in all of these measurements. If you must miss one of these measurements, please contact the instructor to arrange a make up.

Grades will be assigned as follows:

0% - 59% F
60% - 69% D
70% - 79% C
80% - 89% B
90% - 100% A

I reserve the right to lower the ranges in this table if I feel that it is appropriate. I will not raise the standards of performance.

In general, a + grade will be two points lower than the maximum for the range, but I will adjust this as I assign final grades.
