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? Anonymous California
