Question

Hello!! I have an 85 in Spanish right now and it's my only B. We have
2 100 point tests left and a final worth probably 400 or 300 points.
The total number of points in her class right now is about 1,500
points or so. If I get about 100% (97% or so) on my tests from now
own, is it possible for me to pick up into an A??? There might only be
a couple other homework points (maybe 20 points). How much do i need
to get on everything to get an A in this class, or will i even be able
to get an A? I HAVE ONLY 4 WEEKS LEFT!!!! Any help will be
appreciated. Also, if after the calculation, i have only a few points
to getting an A, i might be able to negotiate with The teacher a
couple extra credit points. THANK YOU!!!!!

I have no idea what you will end up with. This is the most absurd grading plan I have ever
seen; a total of 2100 points is ridiculous as is any single assessment worth 300 or 400 points.
Homework should almost never be part of grades and there should be no extra credit.
