SmartWork5

This program will report a percentage of all possible points earned for all of the homework assignments. This percentage will be multiplied by 150/100 to get the points that will be added to your CHEM 1100 score. For example, if your total percentage for SmartWork5 is 78.2%:
78.2/100 x 150 = 117.3

Assignments are not accepted after the due date. If you miss a deadline, you forfeit the points and that will decrease your overall percentage.

Discussion

Your discussion instructor will determine how points are earned in each discussion. These points will be submitted to Dr. Stone as decimal of the total possible points in your discussion. This percent will then be multiplied by 150 to get the number of "discussion points" that will be used to calculate your final grade. For example, if you earn 90 points in your discussion class and at the total possible was 120, then your percentage is 90/120 = .75
0.75 x 150 = 112.5
112.5 points will be added to your score for CHEM 1100.

Grades

Grades will be posted on blackboard.
