### Final grade

- The final grade will by calculated by the following formula: if T is the exam grade and H is the homework grade, the final grade will be:

T - sign(H-T)*sqrt(abs(H-T))

That is, if the homework grade is greater than the exam greade, the square root of the difference is added to the exam, and f it's less than the exam grade, it's subtracted from the exam grade.

However, if the exam grade is less than 50, then the exam grade is the final grade.
