Hi there Claudia,

I read with interest your method for figuring out grades.
I got very excited at first thinking you had found a simpler
way to figure grades.  But, being a math teacher, I had to test
your method.  If you average the grades first, and then average the
averages, you get a much different grade than your method. 

Here's an example:

Your method:  60/100  + 17/20  + 8/10  = 85/130  = 65%

My method:      .60   +  .85   + .80   = 2.25/3  = 75%


What do you think?
