ok, i'm sorry

you don't assign calculus homework on a brand new concept
that is basically impossible to do, that you've barely taught

the night before a quiz on the last set of incredibly difficult concepts.

i'm sorry.  that's bad teaching.

Don't apologize. At times like these, I always try to keep this in mind: when faliure is inevitable, as per this situation, there is no pressure. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the slow slide into oblivion. There may be an in-flight movie, but it will be Gigli.

Dude, can I just ask a question...why hasn't Yvonne been fired yet? Why does Crossroads continue to put up with her 5-year-old style of teaching?

I think it's odd that the administration hasn't caught on that Jim Lau's "quizzes" take the whole period, and thus qualify as full-blown tests.

ahhh i hate calculus. that whole arc length thing...we did have two days to do it. but it didn't seem that hard in class, did it? i gave up on it. scribbled some things, nice circles around numbers, fractions, pi...
