A few comments:  

An average of 52 corresponds to a very low "C-" and that is lower than we
want to be.  Remember that I would want to see an average of 65 in this
course for a grade of "B-C".  
 
As with examination #1, I am surprised about the large difference between
the 212 students and the group of 212-300 (lecture only) students.  The
difference has even increased from exam #1 to exam #2.  This might
show that the immersion into lecture & lab has a beneficial effect on
students' learning.  

We will be talking some more about study habits in lecture.  

Best, RG.
