Monbouquette's Scale

  • Term exams (2) 40%
  • Project 10%
  • Final exam 35%
  • Homework 15%

Note: If you get an A on the final, you get an A in the class. But be advised, the final is very hard (a huge jump in difficulty with respect to the midterms).


  • Material balances are pretty straightforward. So if you're having trouble in that subject, you should get help fast or drop.
  • Energy balances is where the confusion starts and they do not give enough time to go over the material.
  • The final is very hard so don't expect to get an A on it just because you got an A on the two midterms.
