## Calculating The Earned Points For A Course

Example 1: Anthropology 101 is a 3 credit course in which the student earned a grade of B.

$$(3\ credits) \times (3\ pts) = 9\ earned\ points$$

Example 2: Anthropology 316 is a 4 credit course in which the student earned a grade of an A-.

$$(4\ credits) \times (3.7\ pts) = 14.8\ earned\ points$$

Calculating The GPA

Example 1:

Soc 101 3 B+ 9.9
Engl 102 4 C 8.0
Math 202 3 A 12.0

$$\begin{eqnarray} GPA & = & (9.9 + 8.0 + 12.0 = 29.9\ total\ points) / (3 + 4 + 3 = 10) \\ & = & 29.9 / 10 \\ & = & 2.99\ GPA\ with\ 10\ earned\ credits \\ \end{eqnarray}$$

Example 2:

$$\begin{eqnarray} GPA & = & (3.0 + 10.8 + 14.8 = 28.6\ total\ points) / (3 + 4 + 4 = 11) \\ & = & 28.6 / 11 \\ & = & 2.60\ GPA\ with\ 14\ earned\ credits \\ \end{eqnarray}$$
