Prequel to the Exam

Giving exams today in both my classes. Yes, I am a glutton for punishment.

In the morning class, the student who has only come to class once didn't take the exam. Also someone who had been coming to class didn't take the exam. I can work a lot of magic in terms of teaching enough math so that people can pass, but you really need to come to the exams.

The late-morning class has their exam coming up in a few minutes. I know that the student with the broken foot isn't coming. The international student asked yesterday if she could use a translator.

My inbox is eerily still. Perhaps the mailserver is down? The voicemail light on my phone is off. Perhaps the phone system is down?

We'll see how this exam turns out.
