  • Extra Credit opportunity
    Some of you have asked about extra credit opportunities. I have posted three new online HW assignments (Online HWs 2-2, 3-1, and 3-3). You can complete the assignments as you normally would and you will receive a grade of 0-100% just like the other assignments.

    I will add up to 3 points on one of your exam scores for each of the three extra credit assignments that you complete. Your grade percentage for each assignment will be multiplied by 3 points and the resulting points will be added to one of your exam scores. Please note that it does not matter to which exam score the extra credit points are added, as all exam scores are weighted equally to compute the final course grade.

    Example: You complete Online HW 2-2 and earn a grade of 90%.
    (90%) x (3 points) = 2.7 points... 2.7 points will be added to one of your exam scores.

    Thus, you could earn a total of 9 points to be added to one of your exam scores if you earn 100% on all three extra credit assignments.
