Why my district's math structure is bullshit

Worst teacher in my life.

I'm a freshmen in high school first of all. I used to be good at math, but now I am completly horrible.

Every 6 weeks we take this big fucking test, and if we score below a 70% on it we automatically fail the class and must stay after school to raise our grade to a C-. BUT, if you do absolutely nothing all those 6 weeks and get a 70% or higher on the final you automatically get a C-.

I cannot tell you how horrible this is, if they were serious about it they would've put it in for all the math classes, not just Algebra 1. 6 of these goddamn things, 3 a semester, we've done 4 so far. You can be like me, do most of your homework, do good on the tests, then fluke on the final because of the stress and you'll win up spending time after school making the shit up because you messed up. Did I mention you can't re-take it either? If you're absent the day of the test you automatically fail the class!!

So the first test was way back in September/Early October. Easy, I got a 93%. Second one, not so easy. Somehow I was completly prepared, then those fuckers designed the test so you would have to know things our teacher spend hardly anytime on. I scrapped a 70%, barely. Next one I studied my ass off every fucking day for a goddamn week and I bust out a 80 something. THEN, we get another one right after we come back from vacation, like the day after. Fuckers. I get a 93 because I spent all of my vacation studying instead of having time to myself, which is the whole fucking point of a vacation. The last one was two days ago and I completly flipped.

All fucking year I've had this thorn in my side, that goddamn test. I've been stressed out since the 3rd day of school when our teacher informed us of it. I haven't been worry-free in so long, everytime I find myself having fun that goddamn test is lurking around the corner like a python waiting to squeeze the life out of me. My math teacher spends 5-8 minutes explaining MULTIPLE types of math, I remember she covered substitution, square rooting and certain types of graphing in 15 minutes.

So I completly bombed on the test. I just couldn't take it anymore, it took all of my energy to prevent myself from screaming and trashing her fucking computer.

Even though we haven't received the results yet, I know I failed. I've never failed a grade in my life, the lowest grade I've gotten was a C+. I bombed because I'm tired of asking her all these questions on the shit she's supposed to be teaching and having her answer them in 30 seconds. I bombed because I can't stand spending entire DAYS studying my ass off only to forget everything I learned the next day. I bombed because I FUCKING CAN'T STAND TO SEE WHY THEY WOULD DO THIS; MAKE A TEST THIS HORRIBLE, THIS FUCKED-UP, WHY?!!!!

If anything there should be a test every week, a tiny test that simply tests you on the thing you learned that week. If you get below a 70% on it then you spend time after school to learn that thing, re-take the test, and it doesn't affect your grade that much. If you don't show up for a re-take you get suspended or something. And if you're absent the day of the test or most of the week you learned about that subject, then there would be a make-up day(s) about a week and a half later so you can catch up.

I just can't take the pressures of high school, middle school was so much better. If they continute this bullshit for the other math classes I don't know what I'll do.

But on Monday I'm going to flip off my math teacher, switch classes to a teacher who does her job and is extremely good, then go and make-out with my girlfriend until I cut my lips.

Have a nice weekend.

Word. You kiss that bitch.

Grades are a pain in the ass arent they. Man, I've gotten so many F's in the past couple of years, I don't have enough fingers to count them on. And I'm not just talking about F's on tests, im talking about F's in courses. I've barely got over a 2 cumalitive GPA, and i got a 1.6 last semester.

Quit being a little bitch and study as you have to. You deserve that failing grade if you were too stupid to:
A} Know the info. in the first place.
B} Not study as you KNOW you needed too.

I passed that fucking test, but I'm pissed. If I failed it then I could've gotten a competent teacher and that would've loosened the stress load on my back.

:mfinger:
Didn't get to make out with my girlfriend though....but alas brothers and sisters.....
:thumbsup: :gun: :mad: Tomorrow's another day.
