...since she required us to maintain a sheet showing our grades in her class...

Umm...isn't that what she was paid to do? I could maybe see this as an ongoing lesson for a math class, but science? :confused:

I had a couple of teachers that required this. They maintained their own gradebook, but you were required to keep your own grade sheet as well, so you could know what your current grade for the class was. One teacher that required the grade sheet also required it to serve as a quasi-table of contents for a binder containing all of the graded homework and all of our notes from class, in the order assigned. She would occasionally collect the notebooks and verify that everything was present and organized, and we would receive a grade on that.

I don't remember any of the math she failed to teach us, but boy do I remember her bureaucratic notebook horseshit.

This is similar to what my teacher did. She also marked you down if you had anything in that binder that wasn't supposed to be in it or that was out of order.

Could an airline route count as a "partial clinch" if the route is one where a single flight number is used but multiple stops are made en route? Say, for example, you had a US Air flight that went from, I don't know, Philadelphia to Charlotte to Cancun all with the same flight number. If you flew the PHL to CLT portion, is that a "partial clinch"?

I don't think so. A multi-stop flight is effectively multiple routes using the same plane.
Which is why I counted SFO - DTW, DTW - MEM, MEM - MCO as three separate routes.

The Mob-Rule of flying, Flightmemory, basically considers a ticket with a departure and an arrival, with each stop-overs to count as individual segments. Basically, a take-off and landing is a segment, and even many airlines count those "segments" where you get on and off a plane as a trip.

I very nearly had a partial route clinch. Here's how: New York to Honolulu direct, but ran low on fuel and had to pit-stop in LAX. So... emergency landings could count, especially if you then abandon the remainder of the route.
