Well, This is a First

I'm starting to deal with the grade complaints from the 250 students in the Calculus Circus. Many of them begin with incorrect claims (such as, "I had a B average going into the final" when really they mean, "I had a B average a carefully selected subset of the assessments.").

Today I got an irate email from a student who wanted to double-check that I had received and recorded all of her extra credit and counted it in her grade.

I go to my spreadsheet, check her grade, go to the online grade system, double-check that grade, too.

She had an A.
