Hello, my name is Katelynn Farmer, and I am going to be a sophomore this fall at Wayne State University.

This low grade caused my gpa to drop significantly. Since I wanted to keep on schedule with my degree plan, I took calculus two the following winter. I had learned about the math resource center and managed to even get a 94 on
