This happened to me on my physics in class final... The bitch teacher only gave me a 3/5 on the question even though I got it right.... At the end of the day I should have gotten at least a 4/5 on the question because I did it my way and not that way the systems wants you to do it...
You are probably wondering why i'm so upset over this.. well the reason was if I got over 80% on my final my parents would have bought me a car... I got 79% on the test.... The one mark would have gotten me the 80%....

I had a problem in middle and high school because I'd do chunks of calculations in my head and skip steps.
I kept getting only half mark for correct answers because "You didn't show your work", yes I did, I showed all I did on the paper, how the **** am I supposed to show what I did in my head? Vulcan mind meld?

I had a math teacher earlier this year whose class I ended up withdrawing from due to my consistent failure in her class. She would only ever give us difficult problems far above what we had already learned in class, expecting us all to solve the problem perfectly in just a short time. Needless to say, everyone still in her class has around a 60 or below.
On an unrelated note, here's a simpler way to do multiplication problems.

This can happen if you know how to derive a formula on your own. Often, the formulas we use are just the simplest way to write somethingbut if you figure it out on your own (remember, SOMEONE had to figure all these formulas out, and some of them weren't actually that hard to figure out) you might have a correct formula, but arranged differently and with variables labelled differently. There are also some situational formulas that aren't commonly studied, but can make work much faster as long as certain conditions will met (they will give you wrong/incomplete/nonreal/illogical answers otherwise.) I can't really tell how highlevel the math is from the little piece we get here, but those are both possibilities.
Of course, the other option is he copied the answer and worked backwards with a B.S. formula in order to make his cheating less obvious.

Not bragging or anything, but I did this **** all the time in my English classes. Pretty much all of my teachers for my english courses, were dusty old cunts, who didn't like the fact that I would sit in class, and **** around on my laptop, by either browsing FJ, writing my own stories that had nothing to do with the assignment, or by playing pokemon or some **** . There was a day of reckoning though, for each one of them, when mid term finals came around, and we had our first big assignment. It was usually just writing a paper on some ******** , or a story. And on the weeks leading up to having to turn in the assignment, I would pull my same old routine, and they would sigh or smile, because they thought I was just a flunkie, because they thought they saw it all. Come to turning in the assignment, I'm the first one to do so, and on the completion date for the paper, it's listed as one week after the paper was assigned.
**** always cracked me up because I usually scored within the top 20% of the class. And I did this for other classes too. Wouldn't do homework during class, ****** around, turned the assignments in, and aced the test.
Of course, when I came home, it took me just over an hour and a half to finish my homework, but they didn't know that, nor did my councilor when he called me into his office, and had a discussion with me.
Ah high school, you bring back memories... I ******* pray to the god damn snow demons that, that place burns in the hottest flames of hell.

All these people in the comments complaining about how "one time in school i got the correct answer even though i had no clue what i was doing." There is a reason you do things the right way because it has been vetted and proven to work. Just because you got lucky on one problem does not indicate you have any idea how to do it again with a similar concept.
In Engineering everyone does it one way. If one person goes off on a tangent and is wrong or the other engineers on his team cannot understand his method people will die. Guess who is getting charges filed against them the 20 engineers who followed their proper procedure or the one engineer who tried to cut corners and winged it.
In college engineering the correct answer is often the least valued part of the question even correct units are more important, because a math error can easily be fixed in the review process where a procedural error will require a entire rework of the problem.

This kind of **** used to annoy me in school, i would never write down how i solved an answer because i would not need to, then when i did and the teacher would never understand how i could solve the problems faster than they could with a formula that was somewhat retarded Quick example for simple multiplications, 18x10 = 180 + 4x10=40 + 4x4=12 = 252, which i can work out pretty much instantly in my head, if i were to write out a simple formula for solving that it would take me minutes and for ****** reasons my brain does not send the right signals to my hands and wrong things are written down. which always ended in me being a liar and having to redo all the sums using the formula provided and fail miserably at it.

I had a teacher that spent a couple of hours on trying to figure out how I did things, because I never wrote process down, only sporadic notes, some of which she couldn't see how in the hell they were generated, nor could she stand that I would rewrite the question in three different ways and answer them all because she would use impossible shapes.

My old teacher made a FB post about some kid not showing work and how he never got the answers right, which I can understand why he would need to show work. But then, This other teacher decides to chime in and say that he needs an automatic zero for not showing work. Which severely rumbled my johnnies. Just thought I'd share
