My physics grade is a 88 and I have two zeros that haven't been entered. Together they equal 40 points. How much would that bring my grade down?

    Out of 100 points, correct?

    Your Q isn't very specific so I doubt anyone here will be able to find the answer

    I would assume so. The highest amount of points I could get on the assessment is a 20

    It also depends on the weight of the two 40 point grades

    So I think it's out of 20

    So both projects are 20/20 and it says 50% next to it I believe for the weight

    So if it's worth half your grade, and you get two automatic zeroes, then you're in trouble

    I believe it's either a low C or a high D but I'm just estimating based on the info you have given me.

    So how many assessments are there? I know you said 2 are going to be zeros...but how many total have there been / will be in the class?

    ^ Another factor to point out that could potentially increase/decrease your grade drastically.

    There are 17 all together including the 2 zeros

    Okay, and do you know how many points total you have right now from the 15 you have already taken? Out of a total of 15 * 20 = 300 points...how many do you have so far?

    It's not all out of 20. Some assessments are out of 10 or out of 15. I could list them all if needed

    Oh, well if you really want to be specific then sure However...all you need to do is Take your total points from the possible points....so out of 320 or whatever it would be from the 17 assesments....take your points earned and divide that by the 320 Then since it is weighted by 50% or half your grade...multiply your decimal by 50..this will be the total points out of 50 that you could possibly get from your assesment grade Then just add that to whatever other grades you have from other assignments (tests, quizzes etc...) and work with those weights and add all the points you have together But regardless....2 zeros can mean the difference between a C and a B in most cases

    so you think it would drop by grade to a C?

    Potentially yes...think of it like this you take 3 assessments...out of a total of maybe 60 points...but you only earn 20 that is 20/60 = 0.33 which gives you 16.67 out of a possible 50 points That means you miss out on 33.33 points...and your grade in this case would be a 33 instead of a 66....so in just a 3 assessment case...you could have dropped from a middle of the road D to a serious low F .....so it CAN be bad...but in your case you have 15 assessments...so it may or may not be as drastic

    Ahh, this means your teacher has his own way of weighing grades....it would be impossible to tell your grade, only he can tell you See, if he has (quizzes....weighed at 10% of total grade) that would be easy to calculate...however he has a weighing out of a total 97% of QUIZ grades.. what your teacher is doing...is taking the totals in each category...and THEN weighing them based on what he thinks the weight should be...so only he can calculate your grade!
