CHEERFUL SURROUNDINGS !! Teachers in Gilmer County will have the help of a new computer program available to simplify the new, more complicated method of tabulating grade point averages. Since the new "C" average rule has been imposed, students in athletics or extra-curricular activities must maintain at least a "C" average. Along with the "C" average rule came a change in the tabulation of grade point averages. The simplified computer method was basically struc- tured last year by Ariane Coatney, then an eighth grade student, at Glenville Elementary. The program was then modified by her teacher, Mrs. Kay Peters, and is being us- ed by Glenville teachers to tabulate grade point averages. Mrs. Peters said that the program is fairly simple and was a good exercise for the students involved. Since each school has at least one computer, the program should be useful to each school. In computing your grade average you take the numerical value of the grade you receive; (A-4, B-3, C-2, D-l, F-OI; multiply it by its weighted value {Reading-I, English-.75, Spellins-.25, Scienc l[if not combined with Health]. Heelth-.50 [if not part of another subject], Mathematics-I, Social Studies-I, Physical Education-.50, Art-.25, i~bSiC-'25~ ~ ~~ ~~,alculation will be me weighted value for your grade in that particular class. For example: if you" received an "A" in music for the semester, the is equal to 4 points and you then multip- ly by the weighted value of music which is .25. 4 times .25-1.00 and this is the value of your "A" in music for the semester. An "A" in Reading would be 4 times 1.00-4.00. In order to obtain your average you compute the point value for each of your classes and divide by the total point Callie McCoy resides at Glen Health Care in a cheerftd room.
