What is the point in being a professor when you don't even respond to e-mails or other messages half of the time? Seriously!?

I messaged this damn woman over 3 days ago and never did she get back to me. It's bad enough the Pearson website for math courses sucks. Specifically, their services. So, if I need help in understanding some math problem I don't know, there isn't no help for me.

Furthermore, my college is always busy with students getting help from the math tutors there. I am at the point where I could flip out on this teacher and then go give a bad report on her.

I already had one incident when I was retaking a test and didn't finish because time ran out on me. Now, this time I didn't even get to take this test once! Ugh, it pisses me off.

I put so much effort into studying this chapter because of it being so difficult for this to happen. (Takes my books and throws them across the room.)

What is the point?!?

If she plans on dropping my grade, I am just going to do as I said before. Plus, talk to an academic adviser about getting a new instructor for this math course.

I can't stand it when people don't keep communication with you. Mainly, when it involves businesses purposes or people of importance.

Have any of you had anything like this happen to you before? Perhaps, you had an unique situation happen? If you have, please share.

What's you're course?
Whatever it is, I hope you still past you're course even with a sh*tty professor.

Have you gotten a new professor yet?

It's Math 083, the course right before college credible math classes. I already knew this stuff before, I am just relearning it again because it has been a while since I actually put my knowledge to the test. I even know some Calculus, but what does it matter when you aren't using it?

That's what happened and I haven't went to my college today. I'll just wait until tomorrow and I'll talk to an Academic adviser then.

While I'm very good at math, I didn't click with my first calculus professor because she graded tests not by correct answers, but how you got to the answer. While that's important, one, it's hardly worth the majority of the grade if you keep getting the correct answers, and two, there are multiple ways to get to the same answer. She only gave you full credit if you got to the answer in the way she wanted you to, and that pissed me off to no end.

I strongly suggest dropping the class and taking it under a different professor. In the same class, the second time I took it, my grade was 25 points higher at the midterm (when I dropped the first class) than I had in my first class.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

Wow! That would seriously piss me off too! That's like an art teacher asking you to draw a portrait of a tree, but giving you a bad grade just because it wasn't a certain type of tree she liked! How stupid?! It's good to hear your experience turned out to be a successful one in the end. Thank you for your participation and sharing your experience.

I would do this... The only problem is I am attending CCBC through financial aid which limits what I can do, unless the college has some programs which would benefit me in my current situation. Unfortunately, they don't. Perhaps, you have some suggestions for me?

Because of the purpose of my taking the class (supplement to homeschooling) and the fact that I wasn't on a scholarship or financial aid or anything, it was easy for me to drop it. I'm not sure if your financial aid program weighs more heavily against withdrawing fro a course than getting a bad grad on it, but I'd definitely talk to whoever is the coordinator of your financial aid program.

Yeah, I could try talking to the financial aid people at CCBC, but from what I know about financial aid, they have some strict restrictions on dropping classes.. One of the consequences of doing this from what I know is you will be less likely to receive financial aid if you drop any of your classes.

Lol, when you are poor, you aren't allowed to have choices like everyone else.

All joking aside though, I'll see about talking to a financial aid specialist at CCBC. Thanks for the feedback. It was very much appreciated.

***News flash****

I was able to transfer my classes over to face- to -face classes starting in July for math 083! Yay! I do owe a 90 dollar fee for some reason despite the fact the book I will be using is the same book I need for the new math 083 class. Meaning, since I bought the book through financial aid and I already started the classes, and NOW I am transferring into a new class, I am being charged a fee of $90.00. (smh)
