Hi class,

This is an urgent messeage to everyone currently taking Math 2720 with Raphael Clouatre.

A few of us students believe that the midterms that we have been tested on have not been a fair representation of what we have been taught and the practice questions that he has been assigning.

I know for me specifically, and I am sure many others, this class is a prerequisite for other classes. Since this there is no offering of math 2720 in the winter term, not achieving a satisfactory grade has a massive impact. In addition to a VW or unfair grade on our transcripts, lost time and money spent, we also have to work with the fact that we may need to wait a whole year to retake the course - and in turn delaying when we can take higher level courses.

With the VW date coming up soon, we are asking for a timely response to see if there are more students that feel the same. And putting a petition together with lots of signatures that hold some weight when we try to escalate this issue. We would like this to happen before the VW date so students can fairly assess their situation when deciding to drop or not.

We plan on speaking with the head of the department of mathematics to see if any action can be taken. Some points we want to make is raising the curve to boost marks, or potentially having optional assignments that can raise marks and reduce the weight of the final.

So if you agree with the nonsense midterms, unfair testing methods, and the fact that so many topics have been left out of testing. Please respond to let us know that you agree that the mark you have does not represent how much you know about multivariable calculus.

We look forward to hearing back from you with your ideas and support.
