Pissed me off, cuz my friends and me always did our hw together and so we would have the same answers...but I ALWAYS got the lower grades for hw. F-ing dumb...cuz all of the hw was out of 6 points...regardless of how many questions it was...which is fine...but for the hell of it i'll give u an example.

    The hw is 1- 30....and i get two wrong and so does my friend.

    He would get 5/6 as for me, i'd seriously get like a 4/6 or at times i've gotten 3/6. Take that into grading wise....4/6 is the letter grade "D"!! The 3/6 if a "F." Pissed me off for the entire year, so the final trimester i didnt give a rat's ass and i passed with a D.
    Heh...that sucks.

    My precal teacher is awesome. He assigns homework, but it's optional. The only grades you get are tests, and the material is very easy (seriously, trigonometry? it's a joke).

    AP Calculus BC should be entertaining next year, too. A bit more difficult, probably, but math is always easy.

    I'm failing differential equations right now, and I've never gotten less than a B in math before. Can't really understand any of my professors this semester actually, two of them are Asian and the other one's German I think...it's really annoying.

    Nope, no Asian blood. Russian on my dad's side, English on my mom's.

    My teacher views homework as practice for the tests. He assigns it, and we're supposed to do it and put it in our notebooks...but he never checks the notebooks, so I don't even have one. There's really no need to do homework if you understand the concepts. He's a brilliant teacher and everything is explained really well, so it's extremely easy.

    It's nice.

    Regarding math being difficult...I'm taking a class called Advanced Topics in Mathematics next year, which is basically higher math theory. It's the hardest math class at my school, so hopefully I'll be challenged. Math classes are too easy.

    teachers are really important !...
    i had a thai math teacher some years ago who wasn't able to speak french at all... and moreover, he made mistakes on the blackboard from time to time >.>
    As it was quite complicated, i understood nothing this semester in this class xP
