Final Grades

Hi Guys!

Huwag kayong magtaka sa output ng grades ninyo, dahil I chose to alter the percentage make-up of your grades.

I would like to know how good you are without the help of anyone that's why I decided to drop the Machine Project to 5%. Yes you've done well and have not slept for days for your 2 MPs but what I want you to realize is in the end, what matters most is what you've learned from those sleepless nights. Anyways, this has benefited most, if not all, of you.

The final break-down of your grades is as follows:
  • LE 1 - 25% (Over 70 instead of over 90.)
  • LE2 - 30% (To measure how much you've understood.)
  • MEs - 40% (To measure how much effort you've exerted in every meeting. Sorry for doubling this, I just feel that you deserve to get the most out of your burdens.)
  • MPs - 5% (Some of you have done quite well, though some have shown hints of cheating that's why I've decided to lower this down. Sorry for those who have exerted much to this requirement.)

There were no magic done to your grades. If you have any questions, kindly e-mail me.

Please remember that numbers are not the measure of your worth.

Pointers for the Hands-on (Third) Exam

Please familiarize yourself with the following functions as you will use them on your exam:


int atoi( const char *str );

The atoi() function converts str into an integer, and returns that integer. str should start with some sort of number, and atoi() will stop reading from str as soon as a non-numerical character has been read.

i = atoi( "512.035" );

RESULT: i set to 512.


double atof( const char *str );

The function atof() converts str into a double, then returns that value. str must start with a valid number, but can be terminated with any non-numerical character, other than "E" or "e".

x = atof( "42.0is_the_answer" );

RESULT: x set to 42.0

No need to learn complicated matrix operations like those involve in finding solutions to linear equations. You just have to know the Basic Matrix and Row operations.

Good luck!
