Seriously this is a real thing. Should teachers feel compelled to give an athlete a passing grade for the course/class because said student is on the team or so much as the star of the team? Let's say said athlete could not complete the course or pass the class on his/her own should the teacher pass him/her along anyway?

Suppose this was not the case, i.e. 0.9999... != 1. Then 0.9999... < 1 (I hope we agree on that). But between two distinct real numbers, there's always another one (say x) in between, hence 0.9999... < x < 1. The decimal representation of x must have a digit somewhere that is not 9 (otherwise x == 0.9999...). But that means it's actually smaller " x < 0.9999..., contradicting the definition of x. Thus, the assumption that there's a number between 0.9999... and 1 is false, hence they're equ...

School Dances or Parties do not count as "extra-curricular". In the first round, neither of us can bring up points, we can only define the resolution. In...

Mandarin Chinese should be taught alongside English because it is used just as much as English.

Mandarin Chinese is even more commonly spoken than English due to the sheer number of people from China. So why not have it be taught with English?...

Grade Inflation

scienceNerd48

In some European schools, fewer than 10% of students get A's. Is there grade inflation in the US? Why so many A's for Americans when we are not the #1 adademic nation? Do you think that an "A" has lost value or do students truly deserve every "A" they receive?...
