The grade is determined from the final exam (common to all sections of MATH 100 and MATH 184) and the scaled term mark, contributing 50% each. The term mark (two midterm tests contributing 20% each to the final grade, marked homework assignments and quizzes contributing 10% to the final grade) is scaled after the final exam is written, according to this section's performance on the common final exam.

If a quiz is missed for a documented medical or other reason, it will be ignored, with other quizzes reweighted to compensate for the missed quiz. In the case of a missed midterm, permission to write a makeup midterm or reweighting of other course components may be granted in the following two circumstances: (a) prior notice of a valid, documented absence (e.g. out-of-town varsity athletic commitment) on the scheduled date; or (b) notification to the instructor within 72 hours of absence due to medical condition. Original written documentation, for example a doctor's note or letter from a coach, is required in all cases; otherwise, a score of 0 will be assigned for the missed quiz or midterm.
