    I saw some amusing autocorrect errors.

    If you're going to copy someone's assignment,
    1. make sure they have the right answer
    2. make sure you copy it correctly

    as for #2, someone turned a badly-written "waters" into "naters".

    See, this is how I can tell who copied from whom.  The more incoherent one is the second one to be written.

    ^^ now, I could say something about what not to do when copying from Wikipedia.

    "blouncy"

    (the student was likely talking about "buoyancy")

    ("bouncy" would have made grammatical but not contentful sense)

    Our Calc 4 prof. didn't give a shit about the class, so at one exam everybody was passing around a sheet with solved stuff. I was struggling with the class so when it was my turn to get the sheet I thought I'd cheat for once and read it. Unfortunately, there was a sign error in the problem I needed help thing and the whole thing was wrong (more like wronsk amirite?), so I circled it, marked it with "error" or something and passed the sheet around. The ones after me ignored that and still wrote the solution with the mistake in it.

    (The prof. didn't notice/care about it anyways.)

  • I usually don't like making fun of students but someone literally wrote that 8 ≥ 34 on their midterm.
