Gpa means grade point average

GPA means… Grade Point Average

How to figure out your gpa

Change all of your grades to points

Add all the points together

Divide the total by the number of grades you added

The average = GPA

*Plus (+) and minus (-) do not change a grade’s point value*

How many points are your grades worth?

A = 4





How to figure out your GPA

P.E. A-4


Total Points = 12

Total Number of Classes = 6

12 Divided by 6 = 2.0

GPA = 2.0= C
