Course grades will be assigned by the A=90% / B=80% / C=70% / D=60% cutoff scale. The grading is not
curved, so you are competing only against these standards, not against each other. There is no fixed
number of A grades given. This means that everyone can succeed! Please work in groups and help each
other so everyone does well.
