Though this only refers to my TAing obligations. I just finished grading the last of my 63 students’ final papers, with only brief ventures into shock and/or insanity. Actually, they were generally quite good and I was impressed with the improvement from their previous two papers. I am not sure if this apparent increase in abilities reflected the reality of the matter, or if the students simply cared more about their biggest grade-generating assignment. Unfortunately, it was probably the latter.
Though I will miss those kids, I will get to spend the next two years teaching millions of science (yes, that is a proper unit) to all kinds of students. And these students will then never forget to use units after a number. Nor will they make conclusions that outpace the quality of their data. Or so I dream.
