There are three types if extra credit possibilities in this class – small, medium, and large. I keep track of who has done what extra credit and award extra points to your final average as deserved. AT THE END OF EACH SEMESTER. The person who does the most extra credit in each class will receive 2 extra credit points on their final average. If you have done all three smalls and plus a medium or a large you will receive one extra credit point. If you’ve done all three smalls, or one medium or one large, you will receive half a point.
