Hello everyone, I am a Junior at KU, and taking a Mechanics course in Physics. I'm a Math major going for a B.S. and taking this course for my applied math requirement. The book used is Classical Dynamics of Particles and Systems 5th Ed. by Thornton. We just got our first exam results back and the class median was a 8.5/25. I got a 9, or a 36%, on the test. While taking the test, I knew I was going to fail which is the first test score I've received in college below a C. Is this something standard in upper level Physics courses? I've never seen such a low average before. Luckily, I do have an 83% avg in HW, where the median is a 75%.
