 4 May: To figure out what grade you need on the final to get a certain
letter grade, you can use the following formula:
.
In this formula, f is the final exam grade you need to get (on a scale of
1 to 100), t is your target score (if you are aiming for an A, for
example, then t = 89.5), a is your weighted average (on a scale of
1 to 100) and w is the current weight (from the
viewgrades page  probably an 80). Note that you have to round f
up, so if f is 89.1, that means you have to get a 90 on the final to
reach your target score.
