Note: At the end of the semester, students who qualify for the
worstquiz drop will have their final quiz totals computed by adding
their undropped scores together, then multiplying by
n/(n1) where n is the number of quizzes
eventually given. There is no point doing this computation before the
last day of class since until then you will not know n, the
grade scales for future quizzes, or whether you will qualify for the
quizdrop.

The student who received the E never showed up after the second
midterm, but for some reason never dropped the class. Excluding this
person from the average, class GPA was 2.94 (including this student
the GPA was 2.82). For purposes of comparison, GPA for my MAC 2313
class last semester was 2.65; the last time I taught MAC 3474 the GPA
was 3.06.
If you have a question about your grade or would like to look at your
graded exam, please stop by my office. I will not discuss grades by
email, but email is a good way to set up an appointment with me
(groisser@math.ufl.edu).
I expect to be in my office on Fri., May 4, from roughly 3:005:00
p.m., though not necessarily for every minute of that range. You may
call me at 3920281 ext. 261 to see if I'm in. I'll also be available
for appointments from May 714 and (I currently expect) from June 4
onward. If you'll be away all summer, we can set up a telephone
appointment.
