a list compiled by Alex Kasman (College of Charleston)
|A math professor nearing retirement and displeased with trends in academia decides to use his final exam (the last he will ever give) to get his revenge on the cheating students in his calculus class.
This very nicely written story appears in the July 2011 issue of the Journal of Humanistic Mathematics. It includes quite a few explicit references to real calculus problems and insight into the way a college professor might view his students.
