- A = [80 - 100]

- B+ = [75 - 80)

- B = [70 - 75)

- C+ = [65 - 70)

- C = [60 - 65)

- D+ = [55 - 60)

- D = [50 - 55)

- F = [0 - 50)Policies- Each homework must be submitted by the due date.

- Homework submitted after the due date will not be graded.

- Copying homework of others will result in a score of zero.Introduction to Mathematics for Physicists: SLIDE
