Code Spammer's Paradise

63. The other side of the pen

2nd April 2008
Hmm... no-one seems to have complained that I uploaded the previous comic on Tuesday morning instead of Monday night.

They still haven't gotten their actual feedback back yet - that's tomorrow's tute. And they're nowhere near as bad as the comic might imply they are, either =)

I'm currently suffering from PhD Topic Uncertainty - trying to find out what's already been done, let alone something new, is harder than it looks.

Marking can be fun. According to one of my year 10s: Parabolas are useful for satellite dishes so we can get pay tv and the Internet the two things that hold our society together.""

Raiph: Are you teaching at Radford, perchance? My cousin is in year 10 there and had an assignment on parabolae recently.

Aaargh! I just finished doing that an hour ago. I swear, sometimes they get it worng on purpose.

That said, the play of the day" involved students trying to change answers to their prelab questions after I gave them the solution in lab. Must say it is rather obvious when they use a different colour pen AND I eyeball them first...

Oh and I love the students who go
"There's no way he'll actually do the maths and check my error so I'll just put in a value that looks right and hope."
They're absolutely right."
