A TEACHER TRIED THAT ON ME ONCE IN FRONT OF THE CLASS I KEPT ASKING IF THE ANSWER WAS CORRECT UNTIL HE GAVE UP AND TOLD ME TO SIT DOWN | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
It wasn't an exam. The teacher wrote out a long algebraic equation on the blackboard and ordered me to do it in front of the class. Punishment for making him look foolish in front of other teachers a few days before. I stood there and stood there not doing anything while he made cracks that had the class laughing at me until I wrote out the answer with no work.

He pulled that show me your work line on me, but I just kept bringing it back to the answer being right until he gave up. Never bothered me again.

I can understand showing your work when your first learning that type of math problem, so that the student is understanding how he/she got to the answer, but if you can do it in your head and still get the right answer, you shouldn’t be penalized.

Ugh, I always hated that. Having to write down my work tripled the time I had to spend sitting in an exam. :-(

I remember this happening to me. I could figure it out in my head but that wasn't good enough....

Literally me testing for 4th grade working with long division. I could multiply like heck but the actual long division method escaped me.

Lol. Yeah, I think too much attention is being spent on “showing work”. Like maybe you should show your work if you’re having a hard time getting to the answer in your head? I don’t know. I’m not a teacher so... :-)

I specifically googled the Unhelpful Teacher meme with similar wording to make sure I didn’t make the same thing. Ugh.
