    Hi I just got back my high school Math mark and I was 3% away from getting the mark I need to get into a College program. I was wondering:

    Canada, Math 30a

    A) Is it too late to do any extra work to raise my mark 3%.

    and

    b) I'm going to phone the teacher and thank her, how would i do that?

    what would the teacher expect you to do to obtain that extra? aim for 6% extra and go for it.

    Be clear and have a good strategy, persistence is the key to achieve your goals.

    I'm guessing that asking her would yield the most useful answers.

    I would suggest asking the teacher exactly the question you pose here.

    Email is fine, call her at school only. Teachers don't like to be called at home if that's your intention.

    Perhaps he intends to call her while she's at school? :confused:

    Are you from Canada? In Canada, I don't even believe you're allowed to phone a teacher while he or she is at home. Perhaps if she gave you her contact information, that would be different.

    I've never heard that. I have had teachers in high school give out their contact information, though.

    In any event, I would simply approach your teacher and explain your situation. If you did well generally in the course and did poorly on one test or assignment, chances are the teacher will be willing to move some numbers around for you. :)

    I would disagree.......school's over, the grades are in, he didn't quite do enough during the term and now he needs a favor, a big favor......definitely not an email situation! the easiest thing for her to do is say "no" in an email reply

    Need HELP!!!!

    Ok...so YES! I'm new at this, ok. :eek: Can anyone tell me, (I have search all over the internet!!!!) if there is a bluetooth rechargeable mouse with bluetooth keyboard for mac users. I like to buy a combo, because it is cheaper, but if I have to do it separately, I guess I'll have to work longer hours. :( I mean... there's got to be. Somebody must have thought of it. I have a 6 month old macbook with bluetooth capabilities. After days and hours working on my computer, I need something that won't give me shoulder pain. Ugh! :eek: I also don't want anything to use my USB ports. I also don't intend to use the keyboard too much, but when I'm typing long letters, I want to use a more comfortable keyboard than what's on the mac. I like to use the mouse. It is just easier for me. Less shoulder pain. I'm on my computer all day long. The office has nicknamed me SCREEN LADY. Ok..maybe I'm asking for too much. But...can anyone direct me to the right products. THANK YOU!!! ;)

    Uh... don't even know what to say...

    You responded to a random thread with a post about keyboards and mice
    (I know the title says "Need Advice ASAP" but the thread is irrelevant to your post)
    Not even in the right forum

    I know you are new... but you might want to start a thread in the Buying Tips, Advice and Discussion for this

    As far as bluetooth keyboards and mice, there are many
    I use Apple's keyboard and the Mighty Mouse

    Update:

    I was offered to either rewrite the final exam, or rewrite a whole bunch of exams and then rewrite the final. I would also have to find a teacher in the summer whiling to let me write the exams at their house which would be around $60 - $100 an hour. So I decided to just write the colleges accuplacer exam.
