Grading the Homework Assignments
I have graded the homework assignments very loosely and without too much attention to detail, on a scale from 0 to 100.
- In HW1, each of the 4 questions was worth 25 points and the "hard and not mandatory" part of problem 1 was worth up to 20 "bonus" points.
- In HW2, the first two questions were worth 30 points each and the third was worth 40 points.
- In HW3 each part was worth approximately 20 points, but I graded the whole assignment as one unit without giving grades to the individual parts.
- For HW4 the scale was:
||significant mathematical contribution
||some mathematical contribution
Grading the Final
I have used the following key in grading the final exam:
||Your essay(s) is/are worthy of publication (very rare)
||Your essay(s) is/are worthy of weblication (rare)
||Your essay(s) indicated solid understanding of the material, but there is no reason for anyone other than you and me to read them (most common)
||Your essay(s) indicated some understanding of the material, but also some gaps
||You've studied for the exam and thought about the material, but not enough
The good deeds were public and so are the points awarded to them. (Note that work internal to HW4 is given credit under homework, not here).
Your Overall Grade
I felt the original formula for the overall grade was unfair to a number of students who did not do well throughout the term but then improved greatly towards the end. Thus your grade will be the better of a 50-50 mix of your HW grade and your exam grade and a 20-80 mix of those two grades. Good deed points are accounted for as explained in 06-1350/About This Class.
