Do you think education systems should use multiple choice exams?

I memorize information incredibly easily, especially facts.

I'm also the kind of person who thinks needless repetitive work is, well, pointless. If I've proven to you I can do something, there's no need for you to make ME prove that 5 more times just because other people in the class can't do it properly yet. It's not my fault other mere mortals aren't as brilliant as I am. 8D

Really? Even years or formulas? Darn D:

I usually get 90% of the lecture memorized in class unless its either history or maths =D

Funnily enough, I find physics and everything related to it ridicilously easy compared to maths... which is just solving random equations with basically no substance :c

there's a reason I was on my high school's knowledge bowl team.

No need to remember formulas, you just understand how they work and then you'd always be able to derive them yourself.

I have the same thing though, I can read a biology or history chapter and instantly remember anything, I eventually dropped history though; wasn't my thing up until a few years ago actually.

Funny because I mathematics more than physics; can't get more pure than that.

I'm not sure if we can still be friends.

For some reason, all I need to know is the basic formula in physics and I can derive the others almost instantly whenever I need it... but when it comes to maths I cannot do it for the life of me. I especially have difficulty remembering the binomial and Trinomial related formulas for longer periods of time and easily get them confused with each-other ( and deriving them isn't exactly an option because if the teacher sees you did that you'll most likely get an instant fail 8DDD).

EDIT: This probably has SOMETHING to do with the fact that I hate maths to the bone

I usually ace tests whenever it's logic>practice in order of importance but otherwise.... welp, let's just say maths was my only B at the end of the year ;_;

I could probably ace it if I practiced more than 10 minutes everyday while doing homework but eh yolo

wtf how

I can't remember years properly unless they're either extremely important or are in some sort of sequence which correlates to a sequence of events. i.e something happened in 1934, 5 years later a bowl of ketchup imploded

Help me out here, how does deriving formulas result in an instant fail? Also by binomial and trinomial formulas, do you mean the expansions?

I guess. I'm not familiarized with the English terms all that well :(

Our math teacher is one of those arrogant *****es :3 If you don't know the formula by heart (specifically talking about the expansions) you're an idiot and don't deserve to live on this planet

That's ******ed because it's way more useful to know how to actually derive (a + b)

^{n}rather than knowing the formula by heart.
