                                           Final                          100                 Chem Colloquium attended, in excess
                                           Lab Experiments      300                 of class absences. Class absences:
                                           Class, HW                100                 3 pts @ deducted in excess of 3 absences.
                                           TOTAL 800

Letter grades will be assigned on the following basis:
 
100-90% = A 87-86% = B+ 76-75% = C+ 65-64% = D+ <55% = F
89-88% = A- 85-79% = B 74-68% = C 63-57% = D  
  78-77% = B- 67-66% = C- 56-55% = D-
