About your Grades

Grades are made up from four components: labs, homework, tests and quizzes, and class participation. They are weighted as follows:

Labs – 30%
Homework – 30%
Tests & quizzes – 30%
Class participation – 10%

Because each component contributes individually, it is important that you maintain a good academic position in each. For example, if you slack off doing homework, you cannot make up for that by doing well on a test or lab. Although you may think class participation is small, if you are on the fence between grades, it has the ability to push you to a higher level. So stay awake in class and contribute to the discussion!
