I myself have discalculia (undiagnosed as a child) and struggled with math.
As a freshman algebra made no sense to me At All. Could not do it. Even with
my brother's help. He was 2 grades ahead and he got algebra, but he couldn't
spell so I helped him with spelling.

So by your rules, I would have had to get an A in every other class to make
up for the D in algebra?

By the way ... this was the brother who sexually molested me when I was a
freshman so I was also dealing with that dynamic.
Well we are actually going to see how this works since I am currently having my daughter tested for dyslexia. In my unproven opinion the IEP and other accommodations at school should allow her to get a decent grade. The way schools are doing things now about half your grade is based on homework, classwork, and projects. So if you are doing those things, asking for help, going to the office hours of the teacher and or to the math tutoring after school then you pretty much pass. School grades currently seem to be about effort, not knowledge.
