Final Exam *SECRET WEAPON*
    #4165513 - 05/12/05 09:27 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Wish me luck, guys. I've got Calc II this afternoon.

BUT... My secret weapon is ready.



Hopefully a little flatulence will sway the grade curve in my favor!

I don't see how flatulence is gonna help you but good luck. Small, concealed pieces of paper with tiny notes on them are much better secret weapons (not that I would know anything about cheating).

if you have a TI-8* then just write programs filled with notes. unless you have some jackass teacher who will erase your calculator memory before the exam.

that's why you have 2 calculators, 1 that he erases, then 1 that you swap out when he's not looking  :evil:

Yep, that's how I made it through Calc I & II.

the flatulence is not to increase my grade, but to bring down those
around me so that I can rise above the curve.

TI-89s will do all of the work in Calc 1-3 for you. I think they even solve differential equations.

But I wasn't allowed to ever use calculators in my calc or diff classes, so using them to do homework really doesn't make sense.

And better than small pieces of paper with notes: If you have to bring your own paper to write the exam on, just fill up one sheet with notes, and bring a ton of sheets with you. Hide your cheat sheet somewhere in the middle, and you can just shuffle your papers as you go through the exam so you can look at it anytime you need to.

But if you don't really understand Calc 2 and you just cheat your way through it, you're going to be fucked come DiffEq.

I would have a C in Calc 2 if I could have figured out the last part, the infinite series. The final exam was solely infinite series related stuff. Anyway, I'll be retaking it, so thanks for the tip on the calculator! At least it will replace the old grade and bump up the GPA. I'll be writing my notes for the tests in there from now on.... So how do I do it?

Shit man, series are the easiest part!

all you do is mix a few simple rules (LCT, DCT, Ratio Test, Integral Test,
Absolute Convergence Test, and Alternating Series Test) with a little
algebra.

That said, yeah this is my second time around the block with this class.

I just got back my diffeq grade a few minutes ago! I made my C- and got credit for this semester! Shit, I've been down in the dumps the past few days thinking I wouldn't make a C- and I'd have to retake the class. Taking the final I knew there was no way in hell I could pass this semester, so I just rushed through it, fell asleep, then when people started turning in theirs I got up and turned mine in. Man, I feel like a huge weight was taken off my back. :laugh:

Grading curves are fucking stupid! I always get like 90+% and ruin the curve for everyone else.

If you are a teacher and most people fail your tests, you shouldn't adjust the score values to fit a statistical model, you should rewrite your fucking tests so that people can understand them!

I'm gonna start taking calc I in the fall for the first time. I've spent the past two years learning trig and polynomial equations in both highschool and college. I think I'm ready to move on.
