My main problem with math classes is that they want you to write every step down, but I can do like 2 or 3 in my head at once.
MFW I get the right answer and only get half credit.
pretend you're a teacher that writes the math problems for students to study from.That way you'll double check if everything is neat and clear for everybody who reads it to understand.
This is to prove that you didn't copy from someone else. I mean just writing the result or taking shorter paths could mean you looked over some guy's shoulder and written what you saw.
That's the logic behind it I guess.
Oh god, I had to drop a course this semester because of this. I wrote down every step I could think of and it apparently still wasn't enough. My professor said that I was using magic and took more than half off for all my answers. He's from Africa, so I'm pretty sure he was serious too.
This is also because if you make a mistake in an exam and get the wrong answer, working out in your head will get you 0 marks but if you have some evidence of working out written on paper you will get at least some of the marks for that question.
The way it goes with my exams is if you get the right answer you'll get full marks; the only time the method really gets checked is when the final answer is wrong and they have to go back to see what you did right and where you went wrong.
I was stuck in the retard's math class in 7th grade because I didn't show many steps on my 6th grade final
>mfw I spent an entire year listening my teacher explain what a graph was
>mfw ******* in class wonder why they get a 50 when they sit there studying their AP ebonics
Lucky you. I got sent to the Academic class. I'd rather sit though a class where I know everything then a class where I can't understand a third of what the **** is going on.
MFW one question took up the entire board.
I understand wanting to challenge your self, and learning new things, but this was not the way! I was getting like 40% (anything below 50% is failing) it was way to ******* hard.
It obviously isn't 1, if you apply the Pythagorean function to the first variable and use Newton's third law, we get 99x^2(sqrt(cheezborger)42)/9001, then we use Einstein's theory of General relativity to understand that the answer is equal to the sun's mass in meters multiplied by the amount of time in seconds a quart has, and finally, we carry the one, leaving the answer, 1.
That's not the issue. The issue is it's the same answer, but with a decimal instead, and the website is retarded and thinks only a fraction is correct.
