So in the past 2 weeks, I’ve taken 2 major tests. One for stats and one for algebra.
In stats, I managed a 97% that I’m very happy with. My score for the class thus far is 98.26%. I don’t see that shifting much. I mean, it might go down a few points maybe, but in general, I understand the material well enough. So it’ll be stupid mistakes on tests that catch me up if anything.
In algebra, I managed a 115/115. Here is how that breaks down: 107 from the test, 2 points bonus (there was a bonus question on the test for extra credit) and 6 points “extra”. So I had a feeling, but I emailed my professor about those 6 points, to see where they came from. Well they, and I quote “came from [me]. Just say thanks and take a nap.” Heh. This professor and I have an interesting relationship. She knows I’m openly trying really really hard and I am exhausted with the workload of 2 math classes. She knows I’m being bullied by a classmate and used by the rest. She herself is being bullied by the same bully. She knows the bully is also cheating, but she can’t prove it. I’m helping her there. She knows I’m going to have to work my ass off to keep an A. I was at 90.17% before the test, but now I’m up to 94.90%. Honestly, I think she wanted to give me a perfect score because the entire class, in a not so friendly tone, was assuming I was getting it anyway. I couldn’t be happier about that 100% if I had earned it the old-fashioned way. Even so, it wasn’t handed over for nothing. I did earn it. Just not in a more obvious way.
I really could use that nap. I only have half the homework load this week, thanks to the stats test being an in-class test. But I want to spend some time going over old material just to be sure I’ve really got it. I’m not as confident as I’d like to be. I did technically miss 8 points, after all.
