MAT 127: Calculus C

Stony Brook            Fall 2009



All grades (not letter) should now be available on blackboard. The letter grade break-down for the semester is

letter grade AA-B+ BB- C+C DF
weighted total 80+77.5-79.9 73-77.468-72.9 62.5-67.956-62.4 49-55.935-48.9 34.9-
Your letter grade should now be available in solar.

The top 3 scores on the final were 152, 150, and 150, out of 150. Congratulations to those of you who did a great job in the course, such as scoring 10+ points higher on the final (percentage-wise) than the average of the two midterms.

If you need to re-take MAT 127, you are likely to be better off doing this as soon as possible, so in Spring 2010. However, do not expect to pass without significant effort anyway, and remember that you'd need to petition to take this course for a third time.

  A-/AC/C+ D/C-F
MI  80+65-7956-64 41-5540-
MII  80+62-7950-61 35-4934-
FE (%)  75+60-74.745-59.3 33-44.732.7-
HW (%)  75+63-74.945-62.9 33-44.932-
The HW break-downs take into account the presence of the harder letter problems.

PS7, PS8, PS9, and PS10 were graded out of 105, 65, 115, and 120 points, respectively. However, blackboard should automatically weigh all problem sets equally; so, while it will display your actual scores for the individual problem sets, the average homework score and the weighted average should be computed effectively after re-scaling all homework scores as if they were out of 100 (e.g. dividing your PS7 score by 1.05). blackboard should drop your lowest re-scaled HW score in computing the average homework score, which is then used to compute the weighted average.
