As the semester winds down, I thought we could tell stories about our students. Here's an example: I have this student who, for a borderline legitimate reason, didn't take the midterm for a long time. Then he says to me, "would it be OK if I didn't take the exam at all, and just take the final, and have it count twice?" I never had a request like that before, and have no idea why he thought I'd go for it. Anyways, I said no.
What whacky things are your students doing in a last-ditch effort to save their grades?
