Does anyone know how to figure a overall score for a class? It is weighted with test scores being higher than homework and such. Ids like to know if I passed or not and I dont know how to do the weighted scores.

You'd have to post how they are weighted for anyone to help you...

We already know how stupid you are. Go ahead and tell us the figures.

If you can't tell a bunch of strangers, who can you tell?

Take the weight on your total grade and the percentage you got on that section of the class, for instance:

Exam #1 = 25% of final grade, say you get a 94% on that exam. You get 23.5 out of 25% on your final grade.

Exam #2 = 25% of final grade, you get a 90% on that exam. You get 22.5% out of 25%.

Homework: 20%, you get 100% avg on homeworks. You get all 20%.

Lab: 20%, you get 85% in the lab. You get 17% out of 20%.

Quizzes: 10%, you get 90% avg on quizzes. You get 9% out of 10%.

Add it all up.

23.5 + 22.5 + 20 + 17 + 9 = 92%, A- or A depending on if the prof is a douche bag or not.

With out knowing the scale, there is no way to help you really, I guess I can use an example.

Say tests equal 50% of your grade. Homework is 40% and Participation is 10%...

Now say you had 3 tests, you got an 78, an 82, and an 80 so your average is 80...

50% of your grade is now an 80%

Lets say you had 5 homework assignments, and the average grade on each one is 90%.

You got a 90 for 40% of your grade.

Now for participation, you went to class everyday and always completed the minimum requirments for participation, meaning you get 100 for participation.

Now take each variable times it weight and add them together.

80 * .5 = 40
90 * .4 = 36
100 * .1 = 10

Total grade = 86%

Since there is nothing you can do about your grade now, I say forget it and get drunk*

I hope I'm wrong, but I came up with you getting a 59 or 60 percent... Then I'm no math major myself, and I used a calculator that came with a box of cereal and the back of my credit card statement, so I'm pretty sure I'm wrong.

Yeah I know, but I just didnt want to fail and I needed a C to move on to College Algebra. Of course to pass that class it will take a lot of tutoring.

A 70% isn't passing at most colleges. What kind of algebra is this? I don't even know the difference of regular algebra and college algebra. I took Calc 3 when I was in high school, so this stuff is years ago for me.

Well if somehow I do get a C, Id crap my pants. A D grade would work for me.

Is this a class at a high school or college? If it's a college and you need a 'C' to be able to take another class, then a C- probably won't do it. That's what I was saying. You're in the 70's so the prof obviously can't give you a D.

I figured it on a spreadsheet, and got 70.47% also. Looks like you squeaked by with a C to me!

College. Well looks like it might be a 70%, thanks everyone.
