# Earth Sciences 10 Homework Assignments

### Introduction

The homework assignments make up 25% of the grade in ES 10. Homeworks are generally assigned every other Friday, and are due one week after they are assigned. Late homeworks are accepted, but are penalized 10% per class meeting that they are late. Late homeworks will not be accepted more than one week after they are due.

Table 1:   Homework Points Breakdown

Your extra credit score (if you did the problem) will be added to the rest of your homework total from assignments 1-5. Table 1 shows the how the homework points were spread out. There was a possible total of 300 points. Any score above 300 points will be dropped down to 300 points as the final score. You can't go above 300 points even if you aced all the homeworks and did the extra credit.

### Extra Credit Problem Due 28 February

You will find an extra credit problem at the end of Homework 4 which involves going to see the movie Dante's Peak. This problem is completely optional.

Your movie reviews are due on 28 February, while the rest of Homework 4 is due on 21 February.

The problem is worth 50 extra credit points on homework. However, at the end of the quarter, I will total up each student's homework points, and no student will get more than 100% of the possible points. So you can get at most 50 extra credit points, but you cannot exceed 100% of the total assigned homework points. It is up to you to decide if you want to do the problem...
