An announcement about final grades

With all the bad news out there, here is something that we hope will put a smile on your face!

Normally, 30% of your mark would consist of a final culminating project and/or a final project and exam. Because of the pandemic, we will now be basing your final grade entirely on your coursework. We’ll be assigning work until June, and every assignment that you complete will increase your grade. This provides the opportunity to really improve your mark if you were struggling at the midterm.

For those of you who did well at the midterm, we hope this is an incentive to continue submitting assignments to broaden your foundational knowledge for the next grade level or your post-secondary education.
