## exam policy

Each of ${i, r, s, p, q, a, b, c}$ will be a real number scored from $0$ (empty) to $1$ (excellent), based on the assessment groups listed:

 in-class participation $i$ reading $r$ problem sets $s$ project A $p_A$ project B $p_B$ quizzes $q$ midterm A $m_A$ midterm B $m_B$ cumulative final $c$

Say that $\gamma$ is your uniform grade in the interval $[0,1]$. Then $\gamma$ has linear dependence on $8$ other random variables,

If $\gamma$ is “close” to (within $0.03$ lengths of) one of the real numbers $0.95$, $0.85$ or $0.75$, your letter grade will be $A$, $B$, or $C$. Else your letter grade will be marked with an appropriate $+$ or $-$ (if $\gamma$ is closer than $0.02$ lengths from $1$, $0.9$, or $0.8$, respectively).
