Extra credit is one of my favorite things. you do a minimal amount of work and get rewarded for it with a better grade. It is absolutely ridicules not to take advantage of extra credit if you have an opportunity. Let me give an example. In my economics class, the teacher gives you 2 points on tests for every school sporting event that you attend. He will also add five points to your over all grade if you wright a five page paper on anything that has to do with economics, provided that the paper isn't total BS. For some reason, there are quite a few people not taking advantage of this. I could understand that if they already have an A in the class but I hear many of these people complaining about how the class is so hard.
