  • Lecture:

  • The two highest scores from the three exams (200 pts each) 400

  • The comprehensive final 200

  • Laboratory:

  • Student Experiment Proposal 50

  • Student Experiment Abstract 50

  • Student Experiment Presentation 100

  • Laboratory check lists/quizzes/data presentations (8 @ 20 pts. Each) 160

  • Professional points 20

  • Participation points 20

  • Total possible points 1,000

  • Bonus points will be added to or penalty points will be subtracted from your total.
