Making the Grade

  • Oftentimes students who got less than an "A" on the midterm wonder if they can still get an "A" in the course
  • Since this is the first midterm, the answer is "Yes" unless:
    • You have not completed most of the homework
    • You failed the midterm with < 50%
  • Even with the above, you can still pass the course and even get a "B"
  • However, you will need to start doing more homework, inclass exercises and study for the tests
