quote:I was going to post this with less colorful language. I was told this recently when I asked a professor why so many of my professors are incompetent. My Diff EQ professor literally transcribed the book page by page on the chalk board last summer without pausing to explain anything or answer any questions. I was wondering why LSU didn't just pay a 15 year old kid to do the same instead of hiring this guy. He told me most professors are hired because of their research capabilities.
Most of these frickers are researchers hired to bring in money to university, not teach. I said frick it a along time ago and came to the conclusion I would be teaching myself.
quote:Well my Calc II professor was awful as well. We would have to correct her at the board half of the time because she made mistakes left and right. And we coudln't even use a calculator on the exams
The math department is the worst I have seen at LSU for hiring unqualified kids to "teach"
Did you take the guy that talks like he's from a Sci-fy channel dracula movie?
