Letter grades will be based on a general 10-point scale, where 90-100 guarantees a grade in the A range, 80-89 B range, 70-79 C range, 60-69 D range, with plus or minus grades assigned as appropriate.

Roughly half of the homework score will be for completeness (making a reasonable attempt at all the problems). The other half will be given for a chosen few graded problems.
