**MA 2071 Grades**

As the syllabus states, your grade is computed by the distribution of 40% for quizzes, 40% for projects and 20% for the final.

This is provided that **your quiz and final grade exceeds 70**

Since we have now had all 5 quizzes, you know what your quiz average is. It counts **twice** as much as the final exam. If your goal is simply to pass the course, then for every point your average on quizzes is** under** 70, you will need** two points above 70** on the final. Conversely, for every point your average is over 70, your score on the final could be two points below 70

Thus if you have a 66 average on quizzes, you will need a 78 on the final in order to pass the course

A short calculation shows that if you have a 55 average on quizzes, you need a **100** on the final.(!!)

FYI: there have been no scales on quizzes so far. All averages have been 75 or higher
