Updates to the grading scale

To account for the unprecedented circumstances of transitioning to online instruction in the middle of the semester, in addition to the S/NS grading option provided by the University, the MTH 421 grading scale will be adjusted.

Three different grading scales are shown below. Your grade will be calculated using each method, and the MAXIMUM of these will be used to calculate the final grade (between 0.0 and 4.0).
