not sure if this had to do with math but my professor gave us this last hw assignment that i don't understand at all. It has to do with the grade scaling he does.
4x Exams = 37450
HW = 9362
Final = 16385
Lab = 23407
Recitation = 7022
Total Points = 93626
He asks whats the significance of this grade scale? The only hint was something about the multiplier. still confused.

The first obvious comparison to me is that homework counts about 10% of the total points.
Each of the four tests also count about 10%. Add those to the final, and the professor is counting over 50% of the grade on exams.
Another quarter of the grade is the lab. 
You're in Chemistry with Prof. Kautz, right? Lol. :3
