Regarding the grading system for this class, it will be the same as the first semester: 65% for textbook work in the class, plus 3 x 10% for paragraphs that you send to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, plus/minus 5% for being active in class/oversleeping and missing the class.
I will be grading your assignments quite strictly in this semester compared to the first semester. Please put some effort into getting rid of all the careless mistakes.
