Your instructor and your class have made a deal on the exam just taken and currently being graded. If the class attains a mean score of 74 or better, there will be no homework on the coming weekend. If the class mean is 72 or below, then not only will there be homework as usual but all of the class members will have to show up on Saturday and do 2 hours of general cleanup around the school grounds as a community service project.
