CS152 Assignment: Dropping low homework grades
What does it mean to ``drop a low n points of homework grade?''
Dropping a low 0 points does nothing.
Dropping nonzero points means this procedure:
For example, if you got 16/100 on the GC assignment, and I drop a low
50 points, then that grade turns into an 8/50.
- I find the assignment with the lowest grade.
This assignment is worth k points.
- If k <= n, the assignment turns into 0/0 (i.e. it disappears),
and I drop a low n-k points of homework grade.
- If k > n, I split the assignment into two pieces of sizes
n and k-n, and
and I drop a low n points of homework grade.
