Ahh yes, my little SHARP EL-520W did pretty good in statistics. Man this little calculator can do statistics, probability, averages all that shit, plus integrals, derivatives, and solve systems of equations. All for like $20.

Yepp. I had a professor flat out say "My exams have been posted online thanks to your fellow students. I'd prefer you didn't use them but I think it's unfair if everyone isn't aware that they exist."
#14 - turbanmasher (08/28/2016) [-]
Not sure what math class you had but I remember using a formula sheet for calculus. But we also didn't use Ti84s in college, i think we weren't even allowed to use graphing calcs in some classes, just scientific).

Good lord this worries me then, lol.
It was Statistics though... I was literally going to school to be a math teacher and was a 3.8GPS student, but STAT was... just, above my head.

All the rest, yes, we had cheat sheets... but in stats, it didnt matter. I needed my own.

I was going to the rank #4 college in my state, and they were lenient as hell. Makes me wonder, were my colleges crap or my teachers.


Doesnt matter now though. My job for the past 5 years has nothing to do with my schooling.

Its just weird seeing the younger generation going through something so different.

This is why a lot of math tests don't allow the use of graphic calculators...even if some of them are almost impossible to solve without one.
User avatar
#35 - elcreepo (08/28/2016) [-]
That only works if your teachers don't use special calculators on test days

Teachers aren't morons

And neither are most of their students

Fuck math, I could get As in almost anything else as long as I tried

Learn to write like you're Ernest Hemingway's best shit instead and then teach that ability to kids in an effort to keep them from shooting up the place/themselves


Somehow I found statistics to be relatively easy despite it all
#37 - furiousmarshmellow (08/28/2016) [-]
I fucking hate algebra.

"Here, you gotta study these long, complicated ways of solving problems that math calculators can do easily for 3 years before you go out into the real world to not use what you've learned in algebra."

Unless you're going into a field of mathematics or a certain field of science, but my point still stands.
User avatar
#57 - OneOfTheM (08/28/2016) [-]
It's because at that point in education, the curriculum is designed to measure how well you learn new knowledge, rather than trying to make sure you learn useful facts

Even through college, weed-out classes exist to make sure that only those who are able to learn the upper-level material go through so the school doesn't have to waste money
User avatar
#67 - furiousmarshmellow (08/28/2016) [-]
Isn't that a bit biased though?

I mean what if a kid does very poorly in math but exceeds expectations in history, science, and English? If it's just for GENERAL adjusting to new knowledge, that seems a bit unbalanced.

#55 - AnomynousUser (08/28/2016) [-]
I understand what you're saying, but I am in engineering right now and you would not believe how useful a lot of obscure formulas from high school become. Laws of sin and cos, trig identities, algebra and geometry skills, soh cah toa, and more are extremely useful in even simple problems. If we didn't have to take gen ed classes (about 30/128 credit hours), I'd be saying it's pretty hard to justify some of the stuff thrown into public education, but since all those hours are wasted on stuff that doesn't apply to us in college instead of those basic skills and fundamentals that we do use, it's necessary to be taught in high school.
User avatar
#69 - furiousmarshmellow (08/28/2016) [-]
That's more akin to trigonometry, which is obviously useful in engineering and construction and even a bit of physics . I'm talking about things like Algebra 1, 1a, 2, Calc, and Pre-Calc.
User avatar
#72 - AnomynousUser (08/28/2016) [-]
You need to know how to manipulate equations like in Algebra and calculus is definitely used. The only reason I didn't mention calculus was because most people only take precalculus in high school. Idk what algebra 1a is but basic algebra skills and tricks are very useful, as well. Basically all of the skills from all of those math classes just add on to each other and make work doable for people in many STEM fields, and there's already too much time wasted in college to try to add them to the required classes.
#48 - victorsin (08/28/2016) [-]
**victorsin used "*roll picture*"**
**victorsin rolled image**I mean you need some basic algebra to perform decently in chemistry, physiology, anatomy, pathology, microbiology, nutrition, clinical diet, and many more courses that are required to be a BSN. I got your point though. I will never use 7/10 of the formulas I learned in my whole life, but still I liked the experience and knowing I could do something else rather than cleaninng poop and over medicate a patient.

Yeah, but I can't imagine even tech degrees or certifications without algebra as foundaments. It is a requirement for all of the programs in my school. Even without the science associates you will still require that class.

My teacher thought of that. We could only use calculators the teacher lent to us, and it was a daily thing, so the odds of getting the same one back were like 1/35

that's all fine and good for classes that don't expect you to learn logic reasoning skills and formulas that don't use calculators. in my calculus classes we don't use calculators because we usually aren't trying to get a number but the piece of the equation that we plug the numbers into.

#27 - raidaltamimi (08/28/2016) [-]
in my country, they don't allow us to bring calculators or any sort of electronic device with us. and that rule is implemented from first year at primary school 'till graduation from college.

you're only allowed to bring a pen and a brain.
#38 - acerose (08/28/2016) [-]
Can I ask which country this is?
User avatar
#40 - raidaltamimi (08/28/2016) [-]
Saudi Arabia.
#42 - acerose (08/28/2016) [-]
Do students in your country have their courses determined for them as in Japan, choose from one of several "groups" as in France, or choose their courses on a course by course basis as in most of the USA?

Also, I can see this working for trigonometry and early level calculus, but certain things in calc become very difficult to calculate. How do the classes get around this time sink without calculators?

Sorry if that's too many questions ;0
User avatar
#43 - raidaltamimi (08/28/2016) [-]
I don't quite understand the first requisition, but over here we study 12 years in school before going to college. everyone in Saudi Arabia study the same thing and take the same courses in school. the courses differs only after the first year in college. (the ministry of educations controls the courses and what's inside them, for all over the country)

for the second question, every student has to know how to get around hard things by learning the different techniques of solving math problems. but I've also noticed that our courses are WEAKER than the ones in Japan and America. for example, we don't have to plot the shape of any equations, but we have to know basics like what X^2 or X^2+Y^2=1 looks like in order to solve the problem.

Ask whatever you want, bro. I'd be happy to answer your questions.
#44 - acerose (08/28/2016) [-]
You answered my first question very well, thanks.

Personally I prefer the French system, because I think that it allows students to focus on their interests earlier WITHOUT sacrificing general education, as can happen when students select all of their courses. Do you think it's better for students to all take the same classes, or do you think being able to choose a field in high school benefits their scholars in the long run?

Also, what are some foreign languages commonly studied in Saudi Arabia besides English? And how many styles of the Arabic language are there/how much does one differ from another?
User avatar
#47 - raidaltamimi (08/28/2016) [-]
very glad to help ^_^

our colleges accepts students based on their overall high school marks, and I think it's so unfair because people with interests in Engineering doesn't want to take chemistry and biology, or people with medical interests don't want to take physics and history and so on. and this is very bad because if a student got full mark at maths and physics but failed in history and biology and other things he doesn't like, he would pretty much get denied from college. one good thing I want to mention is that when someone gets accepted in college his high school grades won't affect him anyhow.

in Saudi Arabia, they only teaches English, as most of the population here is very very much poor at english, that you won't see any english speaker other than college students and graduates. I had the chance to take a french course in College, it was the basics. and when I wanted to take the next level they told me further levels are not available. was sooo freaking frustrated back then.

Regarding the Arabic styles (dialects), beside the formal Arabic, there are about 30 different Dialects in the Arabian countries (Saudi Arabia has like 5 major dialects) and they differ by the way you spell the Arabic word, and most dialects have some special words. that's why Arabic learners picks a specific dialect (i.e egyptian or labanese) and start learning Arabic in that Dialect.
#49 - acerose (08/28/2016) [-]
Are there any languages which are related to Arabic but are not considered a dialect, like German and Dutch? Which dialect would you recommend an English speaker learn?

In the US we have what are called Junior Colleges, which only offer bachelor's degrees, but are easier to gain entry to than regular universities. Do you have this as well?
User avatar
#50 - raidaltamimi (08/28/2016) [-]
In Saudi Arabia, education Is completely free! starting from primary school, going through middle school and high school (up 'till this point, even books are given for free) up to having a PhD.

and we have three big universities and about 10 small ones. (by big I mean certified international and have all the majors, also allows you to more stuff than just studying for your degree, and is literally big), and those universities actually quite good. with the best professors from all around the world. I'm currently an Engineering student at KAU.

with the Arabic dialect, there are no easier or harder, only what you prefer and think is the easier for YOUR tongue. My American girlfriend chose to learn the Egyptian Arabic and she's doing very well. you can start by that one as it's more understood by other dialects and it's not that hard to learn for Americans.

You must had some retarded (or apathetic) teachers. Back In HS any test we had to use ti84 for, we'd have to clear them, and the teachers would go around and look at the memory to make sure it was wiped.

Dude my calculator had like 10+ stickers layered on it from that, wouldnt let you in without the right sticker they put on after doing that.
#12 - turbanmasher (08/28/2016) [-]
Stickers? Our teachers would go around the class (or gym for finals) and check.

I mean there was other ways to cheat, like putting a cheat sheet where the formulas are on the cover. But I figured it was probably a better use of my time to study then try and cheat.
#13 - whathello (08/28/2016) [-]
Yeah the teachers reset them themselves, and then put a sticker on to verify it, we werent even allowed the cover to the calculators for our exams.
