Grade Calculator

  • Trying to figure out how to calculate what kind of grade you’re getting in your class?  Use this calculator! All you have to do is type in what grades you have received so far and what percentage of your total grade each assignment counts for.
  • Want to calculate your overall GPA?  Use this GPA calculator!

Flash Cards and Quizzes: Create flash cards and quizzes online to help yourself study!  A great resource if your instructor doesn’t give you quizzes, old tests to look over, or a review.

Graphical Dictionary: Type a word into the search function, and this site creates a visual map of other words and terms that are related.  Double-click on a related word, and the map keeps expanding.  This is a great tool if you are someone who learns by doing (kinesthetic learning) or by seeing (visual learning).

Succeeding in Online Classes: If you’re thinking about taking an online class, be sure that you’ve thought about how this type of learning environment is different.  Yes, you get to work from wherever you want and you don’t have to trudge out in the weather…but you also don’t have a professor or classmates at your fingertips to ask questions of.

Time Management Tips: Distracted by Facebook or Twitter? Use one of these sites, which will temporarily block any website that you need to block, in order to focus on your work!

Dealing with Complex Math Problems? This site helps you work through difficult math problems!
