Hmm, none of my professors in any of my math classes would give me grades for creativity, well not good ones LOL. I will admit that his idea of how to multiply the length times the whatever and come up with the something times the square root of the thingy was just about the best example of the old saying "If you cannot dazzle them with your brilliance, baffle them with your BS" I have ever seen.

It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...
