Death to the graphing calculator!

I can’t believe kids still use these things.

Once upon a time in high school, in a fit of panic over an organic chemistry exam, I painstakingly entered a “cheat sheet” into my graphing calculator. I never ended up using it in the exam in question due to Fear of Discovery, but I didn’t delete it, either, which meant it was found by my maths teacher during the exam for that class. I got a bit of a suspicious stink-eye over that, but that was it. It’s also the one and only time I ever attempted to cheat in a test.

Ironically, I don’t actually remember whether I passed or failed chemistry. Or maths, for that matter. In the long run, that didn’t turn out the be the lesson that was important…
