Teaching and Honesty
- Prof Noam Chomsky on BBC: If we don't know enough, we call it linguistics, metaphysics etc. When we know enough, we call it physics.
- Richard Feynman: If we can't explain it to intelligent high school students, we don't really understand that subject.
- Another Nobel winner in Physics: we call this course 'advanced', because we don't know about it really.
Is your subject difficult?
So, kids, if your teacher says 'this is tough,' feel sorry for him/her and be helpful!
