12/10/01: Grades to date are posted outside 4-111, Math. Tower. They have been computed according to the formulae described in the course outline (without reference to the final examination; thus the B total is at most 75 and the A total, at most 105). The homework exercise grade is twice the average of the best ten efforts; the problem grade, the sum of the best five (these may be adjusted as a result of the (next) two assignments that are still due). A current track B total grade of approximately 45 represents a C. Clerical errors in the grades should be reported to I. Kra or W. Kim as soon as possible.
