First round of tests this semester. They almost all lined up, sort of. Within a few weeks anyways.

Chemistry, we covered moving decimal points left and right by either multiplying or dividing by 10. No joke. We also talked about rounding numbers. And a sort of system for naming molecules, but it was by no means complete; we covered the bit where you call the cation by name and the anion by "whatever sounds appropriate". What? Whatever sounds appropriate? So if I think NaCl should be sodium chloromate, that would be correct? So uh, good thing I already know how to name compounds. Just so everyone else knows I know, yes, NaCl is sodium chloride. I got a 107% on the test. I think he needs to learn how to round properly because I did miss 1 question... Now we're all the way up to balancing chemical equations. Why do I feel like I'm back in high school?

American History was cool, we discussed the colonization of North America starting with the Spanish and their mission system, progressing on to France and England moving in, the war, and finally independance. I got a legitamite 85% on the test, but with bonus points, I got a 95%. Yay bonus points! But I'll have to study a little harder. On the plus side, this guy teaches the class in a way I've never seen history taught before. He has entire skits he performs to make us truly understand what was happening, even if we don't remember exact dates or names of specific acts.

Math, I got a 94.5% on the last test. There were only 17 questions; mostly what I missed were partial points for little brain farts here and there. I don't know how to describe what we covered. I could say systems of inequalities, systems of equations, graphing, functions and such but that's the same as I did last year. This was a little more indepth. I still already knew it, but hey. Still not out of high school here yet either.
