Grading for mastery
Look at Ben Chun's argument for not weighting your grades. I get this. I always get a little perturbed at students and parents who can't figure out grades (I know- I'm going to hell). To me, it's just slices of pie. The fewer grades, the bigger slice. That's why when you only have 5 grades, doing poorly on one will really kill your grade.
