Your total scores before the final exam are here. Some issues to note: There were 7 quizzes. I dropped your lowest score, and divided the remaining score by 24 (max score for 6 quizzes) and then multiplied by 50. I added or subtracted points for attendance as detailed in the syllabus. Also, as indicated in the syllabus, if you fail the lab you fail the course. Therefore, if you got less than 75 points in the lab (50%), you will not pass the course. Your subtotal before final will allow you to compute the final exam score necessary to attain any given grade.
