Look What Happens When You Go to Class and Do Your Homework

I make them come to class. I make them participate. I bribe them to do their homework.

I post the slides on the web ahead of time, so they spend class time paying attention instead of taking dictation.

Exam grades are finally all tabulated for the Calculus Circus.

Mean: 83%
Median: 88%

The course coordinator didn't think that my exam was too easy. The TAs who did the grading seemed to have been fair.

Looks like some students know some calculus.

Project for this afternoon or tomorrow: to email all the students who scored below 75% and invite them to come and chat with me.
