### Curves

(This data is provided for your information; I reserve the right to correct clerical errors.)

Curve for the First Midterm. The first midterm was out of 100 points. The minimum score for each grade is listed. The course-wide median was 67. The median for our section was 72.
 Grade Minimum Score Percent (course-wide) Percent (this section) A B C D E 84 69 51 44 0 12% 32% 38% 9% 9% 15% 41% 22% 15% 7%

Curve for the Second Midterm. The second midterm was out of 100 points. The minimum score for each grade is listed. The course-wide median was 62. The median for our section was 64.

 Grade Minimum Score Percent (course-wide) Percent (this section) A B C D E 92 76 58 50 0 - - - - - 27% 27% 27% 14% 5%

Combined curve for all three exams. If you add your three exam scores, you get a score out of 325 points, called the "uniform exam score". The course-wide median for the uniform exam score was 210. The median for our section was 219. The following table assigns a letter grade to your uniform exam score:
 285: A+ 266: A 258: A-
 244: B+ 220: B 211: B-
 200: C+ 175: C 152: C-
 138: D 130: D- 0: E

Your course grade. Divide the uniform exam score by five; this gives you the first 65% of your course grade. Add team homework, scaled at 20%, and quizzes (after dropping the lowest quiz), scaled at 15%. The resulting score out of 100% determines your course grade, according to the following table.
 85.0: A+ 79.6: A 77.6: A-
 73.2: B+ 67.6: B 64.2: B-
 62.8: C+ 57.6: C 48.5: C-
 45.6: D 43.5: D- 0: E
