History... again, this is actually the 3rd test in the class, but it lined up with the fourth exam for all my other classes so I'm just pretending it was the 3rd exam that never existed. I got an 80% on the test :( I don't really remember what we covered, which is probably why I got such a low grade. I mean, I know that in general, we covered reconstruction of the South. I know the major things like Lincoln promoting General Grant because he didn't ive a shit about people, he wanted to win.. I remember that Lincoln didn't give a shit about freeing the slaves, but was determined to save the Union.

Math; we covered adding and multiplying Matrices and building a matric out of a set of equations. Apart from the "Oh, neat!" factor, I'm not entirely sure where I would apply these; systems of solutions are much easier for me to handle. I do see where the concepts of Matrix math work into building arrays in programming, so there is that.. I got a 97% on the test. Mostly what I missed were silly things. In one problem, I used a "3" instead of a "-3". In another problem, I circled my final matrix as the solution to the problem instead of the ordered triplet. Both of those are silly mistakes but I guess, yes, they were mistakes. Another point was lost when I wrote "Orders do not match." for the answer to a problem that involved adding two matrices together. The teacher counted my answer as "wrong" and said I should have said "Not possible". Uhm... Pretty sure I implied thta by not trying to answer the question, but hey. To move a score from 97% to 98%... not worth quibbling.

Chemistry was stupidly simple. We covered shapes of molecules, hybridization of orbitals, and the ideal gas law. Herp. 103% on that test.
