OMG: To profs who don't post assignment solutions or midterm solutions or post practice problems without solutions: What the fuck are you trying to accomplish?

2 comments

  1. My prof does this, and I asked him.

    He said that profs (in math anyway) are encouraged not to post solutions, because they get shared between students after the course is over, and it's hard to keep thinking of interesting, novel assignment problems.

    So the reason is because people keep using old assignment and exam solutions to cheat.

    1. The problem with this though is you get groups of students who get their hands on upper year assignments and midterms and then ace everything. To level the playing field they should post solutions and make them available to all. Big problem in AFM.
