I may be speaking in hyperbole and I hope I don't go off on a tangent, but I think this is a sine that sumthing is wrong with how he functions as a teacher. Looking at it from another angle, obviously you can't count on him to teach you the right material. I hope he eats some humble pi and retires as he is clearly past his prime. Good luck.

I'm guessing the exam covered several chapters, but 90 minutes into the exam he realised that he never learned that specific section

Or the chapters have some overlap, so it's familiar enough that you recognise it, with just enough difference to make you think you haven't learned it as well as you thought you did. The chapters in my textbooks (admittedly not maths ones) have a lot in common with the one before and the one after, but cover things the others don't, so if you've done the chapter before it looks kind of familiar, and you can just about answer some of the questions, but some other questions make you want to cry.

I hate how school boards constantly cling on these ancient teachers who are obviously passed their prime. Why can't they get them to retire and hire someone else the teaching market is saturated enough as it is...

^They can't be forced to retire unless they are incompetent (which this teacher seems to be), because of the age discrimination issue.

I'm in third year zoology at a university and all of my profs have expressly stated whether they want you to know the textbook inside out, even if they never touched on it in lecture or tutorial, or if it's just for use when you don't understand the prof or missed a day.

For what? It was a mistake, and from the way the FML is written, it seems like it was an announced mistake. Sue-happy people like you annoy me.

More likely he won't be a calculus teacher for much longer! Sorry OP this is a terrible situation to be in. I hope everything works out.
