Exam 1 scores have been posted to the gradebook and solutions are available. The average was 72%. Well done! That was a challenging exam. The gradebook now shows your projected grade for the course. This is not the same as your current average. The projected grade assumes you will get the same score on exams 2 and 3, and maintain the same average on homework and lecture classwork.
