Secret Message: Round 2

To my calculus students: You seem not to understand the meaning of "not fair."

I put the final exam from last semester on Blackboard. That's right, the actual final exam from last semester. You don't need to belong to any sort of organization to have access to it. Everyone can download the old final and do whatever they want with it.

Had I not posted the final exam and the only people who had copies of it were members of exclusive social clubs and athletic teams on campus, that is something that you might make an argument for being "not fair."

When I post the old final and then decline to also post the answer key? Nothing unfair about that.
