Exactly. You're paying for it, so you might as well form a comfy ass groove and get your money's worth. You did chose to take that course after all, even if it's required for your major. There are going to be classes you deem useless and boring to your degree. I had to take calculus for my forestry BS just so that, if I even needed to find the circumference of a tree

My stupid brain tumor made my thumb hit "Validate" before I was done! Damn you depth perception! Sorry :-( As I WAS saying: There are going to be classes you deem useless and boring to your degree. I had to take calculus for my forestry BS just so that if I ever needed to find the circumference of a tree, I could do so by using calculus; we have a special measuring tape called a DBH that does that for us. It sucked.

I would think calculus to be very important to almost any BS. Rates of change surely apply to forestry. If you are talking about geometry, that is important too if you want to determine the area of a forest.

Oh, it totally makes sense NOW why I had to take it, but back then I was like, "Wtf? Calculus?". There are special equations we use to figure out the geometry of forests.

I had an architecture prof give the same lecture, the next days was comparing architectural styles in the movies, then two days on the structural principles behind the styles. It may not be as pointless as OP thinks.

I think you should try and report him somehow. I don't go to university, so I don't know who you'd have to go to. Just try and get your money back, or at least tell someone that he is wasting your time.

Unless the prof does this frequently, or the course material is nowhere near the course description and outline, then report him. Otherwise you are just going too far with it. To be honest, I don't know what OP is complaining, just do your own stuff while you are stuck in a boring class.

If he has tenure their is nothing you can do about. Legally, professors can teach whatever they want in class, telling them otherwise would interfere with academic integrity.

Characters from movies and books and movies who are architects? How could he forget television? Where would we be today without Mike Brady, architect, from the Brady Bunch tv show?!

And let us not forget Bob the Builder, who inspired us all to become the best of the best. Who kept us with constant support and reassurance. Who told us when when we were asked if we could build it to hold out head up high and say "Yes, we can!"
