Ummm you need to contact the Dean IMMEDIATELY. You not getting the grade you deserve over a Professor not even knowing the material is ridiculous. Keep working hard though, it'll all come together! Best of luck

Amen to that I had the same problem people pay to much for education to be taught by a confuse professor

My aunt is a math teacher (in highschool), and I happen to be great at math. She always nagged me to try and help her learn the material she had to teach. :| (actually she wasn't half bad, and she sometimes helped me with my homework when there was a problem I had difficulty with. it still bothered me though that she was teaching, yet openly admitted to learning/relearning the material just before she teaches.)

University courses are just getting sloppier by the year, desperately trying to keep up with the non-selective intake of students. Last term I actually had to study a module called 'Eras of English' where we literally had to cover one entire era of English literature and all that it encompassed every week. Being that those poor overworked lecturers don't get enough free time (note: sarcasm) we only had one 2 hour lecture per week and the rest is 'independent study'. Meaning we're paying an absol

Not only universities are sloppy, but so are grade schools. My English final last year had so many mistakes I took the first couple of minutes correcting them. It's sad to see some teachers not care about their students, because they're raising the future. This isn't to say all teachers are bad; there are many that are fantastic teachers.

I think it's really sad that many university teachers don't try harder. It makes me upset whenever anyone says that teachers don't care (not saying anyone on this thread did), because my mom is a 3rd grade teacher. She's known she wanted to do that since she was in kindergarten. We fight a lot, but I can't ignore the fact that she's basically a miracle worker. I've seen so many kids turned around in her class (kids who won't talk are laughing by the end of the year, kids who just throw fits will

60, I completely agree wth with you on that last part. When I was a kid, I was a very smart student (almost skipped a grade twice in elementary but my parents...) and my teachers were great. The same in middle school and high school. In hs though, I didn't really focus in my classes. Not that my smarts went away, I got lazy. I focused only in choir and I still got great teachers! They never sucked and that was because I was considered smart. My other friends however had terrible teachers and the

#37: have you ever worked in that industry? If not, you have no idea on how busy we actually are. Students see a quarter of the workload required and then bitch and moan. Try adding in the prep, marking, research supervision, own research, strategic meetings, professional development and keeping current with the latest research / ideas in your own speciality area. That's not even counting student meetings and replying to emails etc from students in class to help clarify concerns. Most academics

#69: To be perfectly honest I don't care how much work you have to put in. The University I go to is private, meaning I have to pay upwards of £5000 per term, which is not including the tuition money I get as a student loan and will later have to pay back. I'm not sure how your universities work but my university recycles modules. The same modules are taught by the same people once every year or every 2 years, meaning the planning is already done (and don't try to tell me they plan new recourses

How I hate that phrase, so negative and not true for the majority of teachers...but even if it WAS true, it's not gonna get better if you're complacent. Report this. Either she needs to improve (unlikely with that attitude) or someone else needs to be given her job.

#2: they also say that those that listen to metal worship satan and are generally lower in iq than others. You agree with that too? Because I don't believe either your statement or the one I quoted above

Teaching is a very honorable profession, and this quote is rather demeaning. Not every single person in every single profession or career will always be great at what they do.
