Midterm exams (15%*2 = 30%): There will be 3 midterm exams during the semester. The lowest of your 3 scores will be dropped (so your 2 highest midterm scores will each count as 15% of your final grade).  

  • There will be no makeup exams. A missed exam will count as a 0 and will be the exam score that is dropped.  Each exam date will be announced at least a week ahead of time.

Final Exam (20%):  The final exam will be on the last meeting of the semester (date TBA).  The final will cover all the topics studied, and will be very similar in format to the midterm exams. The final exam must be taken to pass the course.

Homework (20%): Homework assignments and due dates will be announced in class & on OpenLab.  Most of the homework assignments will be online via the Rederley WebWork website; there may also be some written homework assignments that will be handed out in class.

  • The best preparation for the exams is to do all the homework, and to ask for help with any exercises that you have questions about.

Quizzes (10%): There will be approximately 5 written quizzes over the course of the semester. Each quiz will consist of one or two exercises, which will be very similar to the homework. Quiz dates will be announced in class & on Blackboard.

Participation (10%): You are expected to participate in class and in online activities on OpenLab. Details for earning your participation grade will be discussed in class and posted on OpenLab (see https://openlab.citytech.cuny.edu/mat1372-ganguli-spring2021/participation/).

Projects (10%): You will be asked to do two projects over the course of the semester, which will consist of applying the statistical methods we will learn over the course of the semester to topics of your choosing. Further details will be provided shortly.
