Facebook Rants --- Teaching and Honesty

When a teacher says her/his subject is tough, maybe it is tough for them. So be helpful to them

Teaching and Honesty

  1. Prof Noam Chomsky on BBC: If we don't know enough, we call it linguistics, metaphysics etc. When we know enough, we call it physics.
  2. Richard Feynman: If we can't explain it to intelligent high school students, we don't really understand that subject.
  3. Another Nobel winner in Physics: we call this course 'advanced', because we don't know about it really.
So, please, teachers, be honest.

Is your subject difficult?

So, kids, if your teacher says 'this is tough,' feel sorry for him/her and be helpful!
