There will be two in-class hour exams, worth 100 points each. There will be a final exam worth 200 points. There will be various homework assignments, challenge problems, possible quizzes and Maple projects (see the syllabus), and these will count for an additional 100 points. The final grades will be assigned on the basis of the fraction of the possible 500 points that are earned.
