Hi. I am amused when a student midway through the class will ask what grade he or she needs on the remaining material, so that the final grade will be say a B. My amusement is because either it is a student in my algebra class asking this question, or a student in my statistics class where algebra is the prerequisite.
I should use this example as additional ammunition to the question, "Why do we have to take algebra? I'll never use it."
