It's that time of year again... Answered

Well, here we go again, school's starting up again and summer is coming to a close. I've modified my binder to show my tastes. What's the rest of the young Instructables community (and Kiteman) doing to get ready for school?

It's from the last BQ contest. I've won two patches, an honorable mention sticker package, a BQ bumper sticker, and a shirt from Discover Magazine.

Nah it's a public school, but in the UK most public schools have uniform. The 6th form here has no strict uniform, just a formal dress code.

When I was in the 6th form, the rule was; dress as though you work in a bank.

The year after I left, they allowed denim.

The year after that they allowed leather...

I usually enjoy it - Ofsted and what-not are stressful, and it's particularly busy for me now, Since I just got promoted to (acting) head of year. Third day of the year, and I have suspended my first student, and I have phoned more parents in the last three days than in the last year as a mere class tutor.

Today was my third day. I just finished my homework. They tell us the average home work time is 2 hours, but I ended up taking 5 hours for homework. I guess that is what I get for taking AP classes.

Which AP classes are you taking? Are you a senior?

Brennn10 (author)Bran2008-09-04

I am a junior. I am taking AP English and Language and AP U.S. History. We also have this thing called "phases" where 5 is AP or IB, 4 is honors, and 3 is academic. So I take either phase 5 or phase 4 classes.

I don't know if y'all have a credit system like we do here, but they've changed things for us so that we need so many credits, it's only possible to take AP classes in your senior year or at a community college. I still don't know how I'm going to make the jump from Gifted Math 3 to AP Calculus.

There are lots of calculus and pre-calc CDs you can work on at home, so you'll be ahead of the game, plus many resources online.

Not really - not all the calls were for bad reasons, and the parents I called appreciated being kept in the loop.
