Assignments

**Evaluation:**Assignments (best 8 of 10): 40%

In-Class test: February 15: 5%

Final Exam: 55%

N.B. The combined in-class test + final exam is worth 60%. I will allocate marks to give you an advantage

E.g. In-class test= 2/5=40%, Final=50/55= 91%==> Final test+exam mark=91%x60=55 (all marks go on final)

E.g. In-class test=4/5=80%, Final=30/55=55% ==> Final test+exam mark=34/60

In other words, the in-class test is only counted if it gives you an advantage
