Third short paper
Due: April 23,
- A third paper will not be required. If the grade you received for the first two papers is
acceptable to you, you need not write a third paper. I will take the grades for the first
two papers and recalculate the total for these out of 36. For example, if you received 8.6 out of
12 (72%) on the first paper and 9.1 out of 12 (76%) on the second, for a
total of 17.7 out of 24, that is 74%, I will give you 0.74 x 36 = 26.6 out
of 36 for the papers portion of the final grade.
- If you decide to write a third paper, this paper should be
approximately the same length and scope as the first two papers. If you write the third paper, the grade
you receive for the 36 points for papers will be no lower than specified
in item 1 above.
Topics for third paper
