•••••••••••••••• GRADING POLICIES••••••••••••••••

•Problem sets that are less than 24 hours late will lose 50% of the grade; those more than 24 hours late will receive no credit.  As in any course at CIT, serious illness reported with a valid notice from the Health Center will be accepted as a reason for problem sets to be handed in slightly late without penalty.

•The policy on collaboration is as follows:  students may discuss problems with each other, but must write the answers individually.

•The conversion of points to a letter grade is approximately >90 points = A; 81-90 points = B; 71-80 points = C; 65-70 points = D; <65 points =F.  We may also choose to combine letter grades with a '+' or '-" at our discretion.
