Im 13 and in seventh grade, and me and my parents are really pissed on how the grading scale is out here!

not counting + or -'s

100-93=A
92-83=B
82-73=C
72-65=D
64-0=F

And in home ec, we had to sew and i picked the cheapest thing a school softball, did that sewed it together looked like it was supposed to and got a c,
what really pissed me off about that c was she was grading on how neat my work area was when i left "Oh what a surprise another anal teacher like the english and science teachers"

As for my science teacher, she grades our folders for class, get this: She takes are folders maybe 10 times a year and i get an f instantly because my papers(already done and graded, had no use) were in the wrong order!

My math teacher (Out of 7 classes per day, I get math second period, because 2nd period math is advanced math, so we did this and that for about a month i was doing great, until these stupid ass math questions came up that were easy but the math teacher made it so hard heres an example:

8X-5X=30

Easy, both X's have to be the same so X must be 10
10X8=80 5X10=50
80-50=30 Easy right?
it was until the math teach made us do this:

8X-5X=30 (still the same)
but then she told us to do this crap:
8X-8X+5X-8X=13X
it was annoying as hell, you couldn't get a correct answer!

Anybody else have any teachers like this?

2. OMG dude, thats how you do algebra

8x-5x=30
combine like terms
3x=30
divide both side by 3
x=10

you obviously didn't do what your teacher told you to do right because
8x-8x+5x-8x=13x is impossible, that would translate too
-3x=13x which is impossible

your teacher is trying to teach you organization skills something that is quite important in high school as well as college and the business world.

thats not to bad... thats the way the private schools here are. public schools go: A= 100-90
b= 89-80
c=79-70
d=69-60
f=59-50

8X-5X=30

Easy, both X's have to be the same so X must be 10
10X8=80 5X10=50
80-50=30 Easy right?

3x=30
x=10

as evidenced by your post in the pi is wrong thread, you have a limited grasp of simple algebra and geometry,

no offense towards you tho, as this is to be expected from someone your age.

5. thats how honors english is in our school
its really retarded

6. as someone who takes an AP level english course i have to say that organisation is important,

especially in an english class

english is an anally retentive langauge and its good to have your materials organized.

7. 11 AP sucks, i can tell you that

80-100 = A
70-80 = B
60-70 = C
50-60 = D
< 50 = F

9. my Chem AP class was that grading scale
my Bio AP class was
100-85 = A
84-75 = B
74-65 = C
64-55 = D
< 55 = E

10. You're in seventh grade. Your grades don't count for anything. Go ahead and do as bad as you want. Just remember to start trying again when you get to high school.

Well thats not 100% true, If you get bad grades in middle school, you wont get into any honors, or advanced classes in high school, and that leads to some real morons

Take for example, Im a sophomore right now, last year, as a freshman, I took honors geometry and aced it, in my cisco class there is a junior who sits across from me and is currently taking regular geometry, and failing

Thats how it is in most countries.

13. lol dude you think thats bad im in texas

when i was a freshman taking algebra 1 (a freshman course in texas)
half of my period was seniors who were failing. (4 of them didn't graduate)

14. oh damn i had the same thing as the thread starter. in science we got a project. it was to make a small car powered by a mousetrap. I did ok, when i tested my car in class, my teacher gave me a C- on the project because it went 1/2 a meter less than the required distance. so then i got a B- in that class for 2nd quarter.

sam goes for advanced algebra. we did this thing with partners, and she chose our partners for us. My partner was a ****in crackhead, so she completely screwed up and we both got a D on that project.

my advanced algebra class is the most boring thing on earth. My teacher has a monotone, and she goes so slow.
just ask deturb. he had the same teacher i have. Mrs. Baer, 2nd period

15. dude you have 666 posts lollercoaster

was your partner actually on crak?

16. no but she smokes. im in 8th grade

17. cigarettes, honestly thats not amable, but i don't see why that would screw up your project unless she was a total ***** that refused to work with you.

mine went more than double the required distance.

My high school is the exact opposite.

You can fail classes horribly but still be put in "advanced" classes. Meanwhile, I always take advanced classes/AP classes all the time but for some reason they still like to mess up my schedule and stick me in general (low-level) classes.

I feel the same way. But it just seems like horrible advice to give someone.

20. lol bragger
-= Double Post =-
where i go to highschool its

100-90 A
80s B
70s C
69.4 or lower F (69.5 rounds up)

I know someone who failed senior year and didn't graduate because of a 69.4 average in a class.

21. cigarettes, honestly thats not amable, but i don't see why that would screw up your project unless she was a total ***** that refused to work with you.
no, were friends and all, shes just not the smartest person out there.

mine went more than double the required distance.
i hate science and mrs. martin so it doesnt really matter. But i got an A+ on my eggstronaut thing.

mrs baer is a *****, just get over it she wont change.
all she does is talk about how her kid got a free ps3 and xbox 360! Her kid is ****ing retarded!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!

not kidding, i fell asleep in her class while she was teaching 5 or 6 lessons from a chapter, and i got an A+ on that test.

22. Muscle up and deal with it...

That's what it's been like for me for 2 years, it's the school grading system...

Maybe you and your parents need to start realizing that the world isn't going to spoonfeed you your whole life :)

23. ya seriously

24. Our grading scale is kinda gay too. Our A's go from 91-100. B's 90-81 and etc. 64 or below is failing.

25. I doubt your Home Ec teacher gave you a C because of your work area. The ball probably looked like crap and you just don't want to admit it. That or you left a huge mess. Why are you taking Home Ec anyways?

School isn't even hard, I don't know why your complaining.

26. ball?

It probably came out square

27. Or an huge ellipse, I tried sewing once and that's why my 'ball' looked like
