First Unit Test!!!

Sorry to anyone who was anticipating a blog last night, I was having some internet problems. Furtunately, problem is now solved. Anyhow...today in class we took the Unit 1 Test. It was a scantron consisting of 48 multiple choice questions. It proved to be a bit more difficult than most expected. However, don't stress over your scores because we still have close to 180 points to go in IC before the end of the quarter next friday. So once again...DO NOT STRESS over the score you received. Do your test corrections, learn from your mistakes and move on with your life.
