The grade itself is probably sitting at less than a 40 right now. Theres no way I can bring it up to at least a 70 before next week ends.... i'm so fucking grounded when that report card comes in...
Are you me? Because that's exactly my problem in every math class I've ever had in the history of forever. Ever.
Are the practise questions (i.e., the ones you get after a lesson) about 5x easier than the ones you get on a test? Because if so, you're my new math-hating buddy
Speaking of math, exam review day is today, and I'm dreading my exam mark. I need a 50 on the exam to pass, and, knowing me and my teacher, I'm probly either going to barely pass it, or barely miss 50.
This whole shit goes back to my grade 9 math teacher, who was a complete asshole. He gave a lesson on an entire section that was about as long as it would take you to read and understand the entirety of my post at an average reading speed. Then, he'd give us 2 worksheets, which were to be completed with 3-5 minutes' worth of knowledge then handed it. Then we had to do a quiz. EVER FUCKING DAY.
Even worse was my parents wouldn't let me switch classes. I told them I knew this teacher (he had a reputation for being an asshole) and I told them to let me switch classes, but BOTH OF THEM said that I couldn't just walk away or I needed to just work harder and blaw blaw blaw.
5-7 people out of 30 failed that class, and a majority of the others got 50-60%. It's ridiculous. I'm surprised the bastard hasn't been fired yet.
