I’m in!

Well, I didn’t have time to get the study “cheats” as Nathan suggested. I had to take it today at 12:15. So, off I went feeling very excited. I haven’t taken an academic class since right out of high school. The test turned out to be not so bad. I knew the stuff…a lot because I had been teaching it the last 4 months. The only things I couldn’t remember how to do was the square root stuff and the graphing equeations. I always struggled with the graphing in high school. The thing I did best on was word problems…who knows…I never would have guessed that one! The thing I don’t really get is the scoring. Out of 50 problems you only need 25 correct to get into the Intermediate Algebra class. Isn’t that an F? So I got a 33. I’m happy. I knew there were 9 that I totally did not know and only tried one of them, so that means there were only 9 that I actually missed. Anyway, off to math class, and tennis I go!

    yey! i don’t think the study things were cheats. it’s not cheating to know what kind of questions are on the test, especially if it’s been a while since you’ve mathematized and you need to remind yourself of how to do things you’ve already learned.

    anyways, i assume you got 33 right as opposed to a 33%? i think i did something similar, but my strongest point is graphing and my weakest is word problems.

    Keep trying to rationalize your cheating Nathan. CHEATER!!!

    But actually, 33 out of 50 is not a 33% either. It’s a 66% if I have my math right. so you didn’t get an F you got solid D. Great Job! But you better work on your percents. I don’t know if that comes up in intermediate algegra or not.

    Wait…I didn’t say anything about the percentage except that you had to get an F to pass. I still don’t think a D is that great, but hey, whatever it takes! And by the way, what is Algegra? Algebra with viagra? And I only said cheats becuase I couldn’t think of a better word. But thankfully the class I have been teaching got me ready.

    All misunderstandings and misspellings have been duly noted. By the way, does everyone but me know what 8th means?

    I think maybe he meant 8 which is actually how many I missed, not 9. So there goes my math career! Duh!
