This conversation actually happened in my class last Thursday.
US: Sir, can we talk about our midterm, we are really confused regarding the material included in the test.
Prof: Sure. When is your midterm anyways ( my eye brow is half way through an arch)
US: next week! on Thursday!
Prof: NEXT WEEK. Well we have not covered actual chapters materials to carry a midterm. We have to do someting aboot this (yes he says ABOOT).
I have to mention that last week was week 6 of the program, we should have covered 5 chapters by now. We only covered 1.5 actual chapters. The two hours lecture is spread between talking about his adventures in some deserted university in the Pacific and another deserted university in BC, as a professor.
US: at this point some of us were about to freak out,,,most of us were about to burst in laugh
Prof: well, I guess a take home exam would be a good idea
US: we've never done one before. What would be the format?
Prof: I will let you know soon. I just thought of that now!
Another prof was asked when he would hand out a specific assignment...his answer was..and I qoute " I will give it to you in a future week". What does that mean, can I ever say I will hand you my work in a future date, what is that supposed to mean?
He also was not sure about the number of chapters we have covered. I sure didnt know neither.
How worried should I be at this point?
