# Introduction to Numerical Analysis: Linear Algebra Math 170A -- Spring 2019

The final grade will be composed by the best of the following two options: (a) 20% homework, 20% midterm, and 60% final exam. (b) 20% homework, 80% final exam.

Your course grade will be determined by your cumulative average at the end of the quarter, based on the following scale:

 A+ A A- B+ B B- C+ C C- 100 - 96.66 96.65 - 93.33 93.32 - 90.00 89.99 - 86.66 86.65 - 83.33 83.32 - 80.00 79.99 - 76.66 76.65 - 73.33 73.32 - 70

The above scale is guaranteed: for example, if your cumulative average is at least 73, then your final grade will be at least B. However, your instructor may adjust the above scale to be more generous.
