# Requirements

There are a total of 1,000 points available, broken down as follows:

• There will be 8 project milestones scheduled throughout the semester. The exact requirements and expectations for each will be posted to the course web site. Your contribution will be worth 125 points each, but I will drop the lowest, so that only 7 milestones count, for a total of 875 points. Warning: the last milestone cannot be dropped.

• There is no midterm exam, but there will be a final exam, worth 125 points.

On the 1,000-point scale, you can expect the following letter grades:

 ≥ 870: B+ ≥ 770: C+ ≥ 670: D+ ≥ 930: A ≥ 830: B ≥ 730: C ≥ 600: D ≥ 900: A– ≥ 800: B– ≥ 700: C– else: F

In the end, I may choose to adjust the scale slightly to compensate for assignments or questions that turned out to be trickier than I intended. Such adjustments would never lower your grade from what is designated in the above table; if you achieve 930 points, you are guaranteed an A.
