Grading Exams...

I'm grading my 6 weeks calculus exam. On one implicit differentiation problem, I stated it as: show that dy/dx = ...... , so the kids HAVE the answer they're shooting for. They need to do the differentiation and get to the answer.

I love how the Magic Math Fairy sprinkles dust on some of their work and 10's become 6's or negative numbers *POOF* turn positive just because they have to.

They're so cute.....


  1. The magic math fairy comes to my kids as well! The best part is when they think we won't notice, and act like we have worked magic when we find them :)

    Oh kids...

    Although, I love your "that's so cute" attitude. I usually just tell my kids they are liars :/

    Glad I'm not the only one...

  2. Wellll, I totally think, "liar", but I also think it's "cute" that they don't realize it's going to be so obvious.

    Deeeeeeep breaths and back to grading :).
