So Michael brought home his progress reports last week. One from each class. Now I know that I am not very good with math (I admit it, Cathleen!) but this makes NO sense to me whatsoever!
These are his scores in one of his classes:
He has a 95.5 on his project
but a 47 on his classwork
His average in class? A 62.9%. Which, using the STUPID 7 point scale, means that he is failing this class!
So to answer the question plaguing us all, no, I am NOT smarter than a fifth grader (or in this case, a sixth grader).
