HELP me decide what to do about my Winter session geometry class?
On Monday I began a 4 day a week, 4½ hours a day geometry class that I need in order to take the math class that I enrolled in for Spring. Thing is, I have bronchitis. I have left early 3 days this week because I couldn’t stop coughing in class; people seemed like they were getting irritated. Plus, our first quiz is tomorrow and the book is not even at the bookstore. I get it tomorrow in the mail. Basically, I will probably fail, or at least not pass, my first quiz.
What should I do. I have three options. 1) Try to stay in class and somehow pass. 2) Drop the class and take geometry in the Spring (if I can get in), which would put me behind a whole semester. 3) Take an assessment test and hope I pass the geometry portion. Math is not my best subject, but I did look at a sample test and I feel I might be able to pass.
I am so torn.
Bonus question: If we have 5 quizzes and they are all weighted the same (100) and I fail the first quiz, could I just get solid C’s (I’m more likely to get B’s, but I’m considering worst case scenario) on the rest of the tests and still pass?
