So yesterday was the first time I’ve ever just given up on my homework. I am in a class called “Applied Business Research and Statistics”. I worked on this homework Sunday, yesterday during my lunch break, and a few hours last night. I realize it’s a part of the MBA program and therefore, should be a bit challenging, but COME ON!!!!!! This is absolutely ri-damn-diculous.
Let me give you a couple examples:
And those are the easy ones. The really challenging “z table” type graph crap was in a weekly Math Lab…kinda sounds like Meth Lab, huh? But I guess when you complete an assignment, it closes it off for good and I can’t get back in it to show you an example.
Either way, and I know this is going to sound like a whiny teenager in the tenth grade but, what is the point? I will never be at work and someone will say to me, “Hey, out of all the people aged 25-40 in this division, what do you think the probability that the next person to walk through that door will be 32?”
I would calmly look at that person and say, “who gives a * and just sit here a minute to find out”. Geez. Much simpler and quicker than plotting and shading a graph and figuring out BS z tables. What the hell is a z table anyway? Is there a-y tables or are we being discriminatory? There’s the next lawsuit….on behalf of A-Y I’m suing for negligence!
You can see this class is making me a bit loopy. And everytime I think of how much I’m paying for this treatment…well, let me get on with my Tuesday. If you have any funny math examples that make me forget my troubles, please post them in a comment here….and thanks for cheering me up!
