The cure to first day of college miseries

In it, I explained that they could redo the quiz and turn it in on exam day.

  1. Only bureaucratic ones like those above. If I do worse on the redo, will you use my original quiz grade?
  2. And that respect means that you have to start focusing and being diligent. And everyone finished by the four hour mark.
  3. Ask questions in class.
  4. This is a decision for you to make. A play, first class man by alter ego productions, was based on david freeman's first class man the play is centred around ramanujan and his complex and dysfunctional relationship with hardy on 16 october 2011, it was announced that roger spottiswoode, best known for his james bond film tomorrow never dies, is working on the film version, starring actor siddharth.
  5. And so the semester continues … New here? Another said that they learned their lesson.

The exam was today. One of the reasons I gave them the redo, outside of the fact that they were unprepared, is so that they can get a taste of success and know what it takes to be successful. Another reason was to try convey a message through yet another medium that they are in college and that their ambitions require work. So, we had quiz one yesterday. As many of you found out, the material in this class is hard if we have not be doing daily practice. And this is college, so I leave the practicing up to you.

To make a very long story not as long, here are a few things: What do I have to do get my points? Will I get my points if I do this? Will my points affect my points? If you want points, the easiest way to get them is to learn — not cram, but to learn. If you keep your focus on learning, the points will come in spades. And the academic death spiral will continue.

You will push yourself out of your major. Many of you have real ambition and desire. I heard all sorts of majors on our first day. This is why I asked! These are not fluff topics!

They are real topics. And it is awesome that you have a desire for this! But desire is a small part of the equation for success. At some point, you have to put in your time!

Every week I ask if there are questions, and there are none. With the exception of one or two students, I have received no emails from anyone else about the course material. You are all coming to class!

  1. The exam was designed to take an hour and a half.
  2. If you are, if you are genuinely interested in your future and doing what you want, then I advise, implore, plead, that you start being good students. And that respect means that you have to start focusing and being diligent.
  3. Do you enjoy this blog? Half the class was done by the two hour mark and the exams were mixed — some students gave up.

So clearly you care about learning! Or do you care about points? Yet, we are throwing away four hours at a time every week when we come to class.

One penny is about fifteen minutes. Some of you have approached me about dropping the class. I got As in my other math classes. You have a choice right now! Are you really into it? If you are, if you are genuinely interested in your future and doing what you want, then I advise, implore, plead, that you start being good students.

Make time for this class regardless of points. There are millions of people in the world who can do this. If those millions can do it, so can you. You can do this. You just have to give the course material the respect it deserves.

We’re In College Now, This Isn’t 13th Grade

And that respect means that you have to start focusing and being diligent. Ask questions in class. If staring at a few symbols of math has you vexed, treat it like it is a full page of text. How long would it take you to read a page 8.

Then spend ten minutes reading the equation. Read it out loud. This is a decision for you to make. If you want to redo this quiz and turn it in next week when we meet, you are welcome to do so.

You have a full week. As we get older second chances come less frequently and tend to be increasingly more expensive metaphorically and financially. At the end of the day, if you want to get an education that is suited for you, start doing your part. As students, working for yourself means studying, learning, living and breathing your courses.

There is a lot you can learn if you open your mind to learning. I got a number of messages from students. One was grateful for the opportunity at a redo. Another said that they learned their lesson. So far so good. Sometimes it just takes a kick in the pants. But then I received these messages not exact quotes: How are you going to grade the redo?

Are you going to average it with the other quiz? Can I just turn in the questions I think I got wrong? Did you grade the original quiz? I ask because I want to know if I should redo it, depending on the grade.

If I do worse on the redo, will you use my original quiz grade? Also, sadly, I received no technical questions about the quiz. Only bureaucratic ones like those above. Some students looked confused. I want my violins!! A student at the other side of the room was chuckling to himself. The exam was designed to take an hour and a half.

I gave them four hours. By my rough, non-mathematical estimates, of my 30 or so students, three finished within an hour and those exams looked good. Half the class was done by the two hour mark and the exams were mixed — some students gave up.

Six students remained at the three hour mark. And everyone finished by the four hour mark. And a very kind, thoughtful statement from a student upon turning in the exam: Thank you for the redo. I think I get it now. And so the semester continues … New here? Check out the "About The Blog" page and say "Hello" to shahlock! Do you enjoy this blog?
