"The next person who talks will get a zero for their class participation grade."

Yes, sir! Umm, ma'am. Sorry. Actually, I'm not.

Same T.A. as the first post. First of all, the quote is pretty funny because it contradicts itself. She said this while absolutely nothing was happening in class. The professor was off to the side talking to someone, and the lecture hadn't even started.

I want to know how a student in this class has a chance of getting more than a zero anyway, considering neither the T.A.'s nor the professor know our names.

I don't even agree with the idea of a class participation grade in most cases. Mine was never good for any class. A lot of students with good participation grades sure talk a lot, but (you know where I'm going with this) don't say anything.
