A man walks into a bar and asks the barman for a glass of water. The barman pulls out a gun and points it at the man. The man says ‘Thank you’ and walks out.

Today's Class:

Before we jump into what we are doing today I went over the group grade form which is a large part of lab grades. I showed the classes just exactly how they are being scored. Additionally we placed labels on the edge of our COWS because it is difficult to see who they belong to.

PM Update:

Students labeled their COWS today so it is easier to find them and I collected the corrected tests and entered those grades in the gradebook. PLEASE do not waste my time by turning in an uncorrected test. I recheck them all ,and that adds about 45 minutes to my work day. Only turn your test in if it has been COMPLETELY CORRECTED.
