Grading You will be doing projects throughout the term. Your grade will be based on the cumulative result along with my estimate of how strongly I would recommend you for a job in this area. Considerations will include the quality and timeliness of your work along with other factors including (but not limited to) initiative, helpfulness, and reliability. 

Each week, I will ask for volunteers to present solutions to the project of the week. The number of times you present material will affect your grade. The quality of the work that you present along with your ability to explain it will also be taken into consideration, but the number of presentations will be most important.

The final exam for this class is scheduled for March 16 at 4:30. I plan to schedule individual interviews with each of you in place of a traditional final.
