-The best way to ensure you are earning the assigned amount of points is to work on the problems consistently throughout the semester. Two weeks after a problem is assigned it will be worth half the original points. A problem will also be worth half the original points if we show the solution in class. Students who choose to put off all the work until the end of the semester will have a difficult time getting a good grade in the course. This course is heavily weighted toward effort. If you work hard you will get a good grade. If you have any question please ​come and talk to Keith, Jared, or DrClement.+The best way to ensure you are earning the assigned amount of points is to work on the problems consistently throughout the semester.
