Dirty Little Secret

The worst math grade I’ve ever gotten was a “B.” Not even a “B+”, it’s just a plain old “B.”

It happened many years ago at a school called Florida State University, where I was taking numerical linear algebra. Somehow, I completely fluked the final.

Looking back, this was almost expected. I didn’t start studying until 3 hours before the exam. I recall that I got over 2 standard deviations above the mean on the first two exams and though I can just depend on the average. Little did I know that this final was more than the previous 2 exams combined…

Whelp, that’s my dirty little secret.


A bit busy recently.

Had a concert Saturday, project and HW due Sunday, prelim and homework on Monday, and a prelim tomorrow.
