The test of Doom

Hey folks! Craig, today's scribe, is at work today so I'm going to scribe for him today (doesn't really count as a scribe post on my behalf since we accomplished so little today). Craig will still be scribe for tomorrow, so there's no need to cry about his absense in the blog today. =D Well, today we had a morning and afternoon class, but still didn't really do anything each class so this post is bound to be short.

Morning Class:
In the morning , we were given, as told, the greatly anticipated circular functions test. It was not what I had expected, and to be honest, I expected a lot more from the test. But still, the morning class was an intense one, as an ambient tension spread across the class once the test was given out. Complete silence overtook the room, with the exception of pencil scratching and calculator button mashing. Class progressed with this seemingly ominous silence, only to be interrupted by the substitute teacher telling us to place our tests on the desk at the front on our way out of the class. Period two was imminent, so some scrambled to check over their test or just to finish their test, while others blissfully laid their papers on the desk of fortitude. Once the bell rang, everyone handed in their tests, if they did not already do so, and that concluded the morning class.

Afternoon Class:
There's nothing much to say concerning the afternoon class, as we really didn't do much. We were "assigned" to read pages 10 to 16 I believe, and to complete the assignment it stated on the board. When did we ever receive this assignment? It's odd because I could have sworn he said something about "applied 40S." I really didn't know what he was talking about, but class turned out okay. The afternoon was a big slack class, everyone just sat in their desks (or moved around) and completed homework and did practice problems and such. I myself finished homework in the class, and talked about the test from the morning class. Many of us were still conversing and arguing about questions that were on the test, and in many cases one side of the chattering parties ended up feeling regret for realizing their mistakes on the test. For the rest of the class, not much else happened except for the aforementioned activities, and we didn't learn anything, so I don't think I can say anymore.

Now I'm just wondering whether we're still going to have to complete the rest of the test, which is the graphing part of it. I was under the impression that this was going to be given to us in the afternoon, but it wasn't, so I'm assuming that it will be given to us tomorrow morning. Am I correct? Well either way, I think I, as the rest of you should, am going to practice some trigonometric graphing problems to prepare for tomorrow.
Good night everybody! Study for tomorrow's graphing portion of the circular functions test (at least I think it's still on for tomorrow) and I wish everyone good luck!

Rats! I mixed up the days and left you guys an assignment that was supposed to be for my Applied Math 40S class. Sorry about that.

But, as you've already surmised. We will begin tomorrow morning's class with the graphing part of the Circular Functions test. 2 questions, 10 minutes.

Thanks Chris, I owe you one and be prepared for a second chance to scribe in the near future... ;) lol
