There will be no midterm or final. You are expected to work on a substantial project during the semester which will count towards 50% of your grade. The quizzes will be open notes; no books allowed. The remaining 10% of your grade depends on class participation.
I don't grade on a strict curve, on the other hand I will not announce preset cutoff scores for achieving certain grades. Grading is relative. The best way to ensure an A is to consistently do better than your classmates. I will take care to ensure that the grade cutoffs are 'sensible' i.e. no one will miss a higher grade by a very small number of points.
