Important Information

  • COURSE GRADES Your grade has been submitted to the registrar and should appear soon. Here are the stats:


  • FINAL EXAM STATS Your final exam score has been posted to catalyst. You can pick up your final exam Spring quarter.


  • Final Exam Seating Chart: Our final exam is in PAA A118 on March 16 at 1:30pm and seating is assigned. Click here for the seating chart. Make sure to bring a picture ID to the exam, which is Saturday March 16, 1:30pm in PAA A118.

  • Grade Estimate Formula: To estimate your grade prior to the final exam, calculate

    x=midterm1 score + midterm 2 score.

    This will be a number between 0 and 100. Plug into this function:

    G(x)=0.596875 + 0.034375 x.

    Note: This estimate is only based on your two midterm scores,which comprise 35% of your final grade. This does not factor in homework, worksheets or the final exam. Final grades can go up or down depending on the performance on the final exam, which is worth 40% of your final grade. A grade of 2.0 in Math 124 is required to take Math 125.
