Thanks everyone for the kind words regarding my lapse in releases…!
For those who were wanting to know, the midterm was for Discrete Data Structures. The question(s) in particular were regarding modular arithmetic and proving things that the teacher asked us to. The main stumbling point, at least for what appears to be all but three of the students who took the test, was how the questions were asked. None of us really knew what he wanted… yeah. They weren’t ever particularly mentioned during class time nor in any of the homework. The people that got it correct, after asking them about it, said that they “just guessed correct”.
Upside is that it looks like he’ll be doing a square root curve to the grades, so that’s great. (sqrt(grade%)*100) My 70% -> 83%. Woo.
