disscussions = discussions
encorporate = incorporate
expectually = especially…. I know that I recently featured “expesilly” (or something) in a post dedicated to one student’s comment, but I felt this was a fun spelling of “especially” as well.
paitent = patient, this is like a typo, but with pen.
perfesional = professional, or “personal” mixed with “professional.” Like I said recently, I like combining words.
accomidate = accommodate
cirriculum = curriculum, did no one ever teach you that a “c” before “e” or “i” makes an “s” sound?
espically = especially
intresting = interesting, though I suppose that’s how we pronounce it, sometimes.
scenerios = scenarios, say it like a British person: scen-AHHHH-rios
awsome = awesome
recomend = recommend
sylabus = syllabus
souly = solely… this just makes me think of “soulful” or something.
waisted = wasted… like high waisted jeans?
balenced = balanced
chalanged = challenged (I see a pattern…)
coures = course… this one is the kind of thing I would expect to see type-written (silly, little typos), however it was hand-written.
handel = handle… unless you’re talking about the composer, but since you weren’t….
illitrations = at first I thought “illustrations,” but now I’m not sure that it isn’t “alliterations.”
Now, anyone who knows me knows that I like to make up words. I combine two words to make a snappy sounding contraction. I add -ness and all sorts of other prefixes and suffixes to words just for fun. But I don’t write them down (unless I’m IMing someone who knows me well). That way we don’t end up with words like this one.
“The inside papers were very helpful in writting the major paper.”
They were insight papers. And…
writting = writing… seriously people.
“Please, please, PLEASE Never Make this a Night Class!!”
Do students think that capitalizing the first letter of a word emphasizes it the same way as capitalizing the whole word does? To me, it just looks like a title.
“Learning how to represent a function as a power series. Being able to tell people my classes, and then they think I’m smart or crazy or both.”
This was for a mid-level math class for majors. Hence the smart and crazy.
“not act so oblivious, if that’s the right word.”
I really feel like you could give me a little more background on what you mean so that I know if “oblivious” is the right word.
“Maybe it could be optional for students who believe they can take the college level course of math.”
Let me tell you something about ACT/SAT tests and college. Not only do your overall scores qualify you to get into a good school, but the individual subject scores help the school decide where to place you in certain subjects. Specifically, at the school where I work, a student must achieve 17 or higher on the math portion of the ACT in order to be able to take the “college level course of math.” It’s not about beliefs of the students, it’s about scores.
Or admissions offices could just ask students if they think they could handle it.
