I have survived my first round of exams. For some reason this semester my first round only had 2 exams. One in Calculus and another in Physics. I got an 87% on Calc and 100% on the physics one. Sounds good doesn't it? But hold on. Let us take a look at calculus quizzes so far. These are out of ten. 6, 4.5. and 6. Ouch not so good.
Physics has been better. Once again out of ten. 8,8, and 9. Physics labs, also out of ten have been okay too. 9,8,and 8. In Materials so far we have had 3 homeworks-all of those have been a check plus. He only offers three grades on homework check plus or 100, check or 90 and check minus or 80. He just doesn't go any lower than an 80 on homework. Turn in a paper with just your name and the homework questions and no answers will get you a check minus, but that is still worth an 80. We have handed in three labs so far that I received a 5.4/6.0 or a 90% on those. My English class has been good too. He grades on a five scale. we have turned in five assignments so far. All fives. The CAD class has had three grades so far. Based on ten I have gotten 9,9.5 and 10.
We are now in the 5th week of this semester. That means we have next week off. The week we go back I have 3 exams. So my vacation time will be spent getting ready for those three exams.
I am very worried about the Calculus class. It is very hard. I do understand the concepts but keep making foolish errors on my quizzes. Hopefully I will stop doing that.
