Grades have been updated.  They include all make up work and retake tests. 

If you do not like your grade.  Here are a list of things I suggest taking a look at.

1.  Are you doing your homework for points or to learn?  Don't just do it to get it done.  Do it to learn the material.

2.  Are you following directions?  Many student are losing points for simply not following directions.  If it says to write a sentence, then WRITE A SENTENCE!!!  A sentence has a subject and a predicate.  If you are not sure if it is a sentence or not.  Try pretending you are plugging it into a paragraph.  Does it make sense on its own?  If not, it is not a sentence.  Also it asks you to write the significance.  Do that!!!

3.  Do you know the material?  Can you explain a term without your notes?  If not, you do not know the material.  You may need to study more.

4.  Do your homework!!  Homework is practice.  Without the exposure to the material, you will be lost in class and on tests. 

Hope that helps.  In the end, it comes down to what you are willing to do to help yourself.  I can't help you if you do not want to learn.
