1.4. Going into the Final Exam, you are hoping to get an A- in the course, which requires getting an overall 90% without rounding; having a grade of 89.9 won’t be enough. If you have attended every class, averaged an 93% on the Homework, scored an 85% on the Midterm, and a 94% on the Project, what is the minimum score (out of 100) you need on the Final Exam to get an A- in the course?

 

Stretch Goal. You scored a 96% on the Final Exam, congratulations! Is there a reasonable way to change the weights of the different grades in the course such that your overall grade would be a 96% (given your scores on other portions from 1.4), giving you a chance at an A+?

Assuming this is what is in effect:

For your Kinesiology class, the instructor is using the following grading scheme:

                        Percentage of grade

 Homework                  25%                 .25 * 93 =    23.25

Midterm Exam              20%                .20 * 85 =    17

Project                          15%                .15 * 94 =    14.1

Attendance                     5%                                     5

 Final Exam                   35%                                                    the REDs add to 59.35       90 - 59.35 = 30.65 needed for final points

                                                              .35 x = 30.65

                                                                    x = score needed on final = 30.65/.35 = 87.57    G 'Luck !
