Hello all. (Note to mods, I’m trying to deal with this in my usual happy, sweetness and light way…but if the pitizens are better for this sort of thing, by all means let it go there)
I just got back from my latest statics exam. Those of you who know me well have heard my bi-weekly diatribes on this prof’s stupidity and insanity. I’ll hit the high points here:
~couldn’t come up with a religion other than Christianity…while ending an impassioned speach on tolerance and diversity in education.(Dimwit.)
~charges points for asking clarification questions during an exam. (Yes! What a wonderful educational outlook! Engineers should never check to make sure they understand the limitations of a problem statement before charging in!)
~assigns and collects homework on sections not covered in lecture yet.(This one is okay, he can’t teach anyway)
~complains about our showing up to office hours and how much work he has to do for us.
~reads his “lectures” out of the book. (Oh yea, you work hard preparing)
But the latest exam was a beaut. We asked for a practice exam to be posted on the class website so we could…oh, I don’t know…prepare for the exam! He took the class before the exam to give us a “practice exam” which he then informed us he could not grade and return until after the real exam…but that’s okay because it didn’t cover what was on the real exam anyway. :rolleyes:
It sure didnt.** A quarter of the exam was problems of a kind that were not discussed in class, were not assigned in homework, and really were not on the practice exam.**
So, for his failure as a teacher, I was willing to let him slide. For his delighting in playing head games and screwing with my grades, I want him…severely discomforted. Any creative ideas to this end would be apreciated.
Stabbing him with a pencil through the throat is a starting point.
Forcing him to convert to New-Age Taoism is another.
Beat him with the textbook saying, “And what’s this resultant force? And this one? And this one?”
