Points taken off in math and science courses for things that have nothing to do with either math or science The math teacher will not let you take the quiz if you come to class without your book, because he does not write the questions on the board. He refuses to. Also even if you are just taking his class for fun and you've already passed the course before and your a total pro at solving these kinds of math problems, you still won't be allowed to take the quiz and ace it and show your mathematically ability JUST because you did not bring a math book to school. At the same school the chemistry teacher takes off a quarter of an exam grade if you don't take 2 of the online quizzes and write a paragraph about yourself to introduce yourself to the rest of the class on her online class discussion forum. She wants to know personal things about you and your hobbies, and if you can't find the link to post it and you get marked down by LOTS of points, by the time she emails back to tell you where the link is the assignment is already due. Pretty sad because this ALSO is a course that is familiar and easy, the chemistry part is down cold and super easy, it's just when they mark you down and tell you that your in danger of failing due to the non chemistry stuff even though she says your actual scores with the stuff related to chemistry are through the roof and perfect. Someone said the school is doing this to make people retake classes so they can get rich at your expense. I'm thinking of changing schools.
