This program will report a percentage of all possible points earned for all of the homework assignments. This percentage will be multiplied by 1.0 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% x 1 = 78.2 points

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

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. That decimal will be multiplied by 100 to get your discussion points.


All scores will be posted on blackboard.
