Homework Problem: What kind of pattern is depicted in the figure below?
Dear Professor Wombat,
I am having trouble with the homework. It doesn’t seem to correlate with what is in the text. Can we set up an appointment to meet during [sometime that has nothing to do with the office hours you gave us. I know you explained what an adjunct does and you even mentioned that you are literally in a classroom an hour away, teaching a class at the precise time I requested an appointment]?
Dear Legally an adult,
Hi. Unfortunately, I am in class and/or at other colleges at times other than the times I set aside for office hours for your class. I am looking at the textbook and the homework assignment side by side, and the information you need is definitely in there. Please re-read the section on “patterns”, very carefully. The answers you need are in there. I will be available by e-mail later this evening, and again tomorrow afternoon. After you give that section a [first look, but I played along and said “second look”], let me know if you still need help.
Hi, again. That question IS from your book, I made copies because some people said the bookstore ran out of copies. When you re-read the section, be sure to take note of the figure on page XYZ. That should help.
Good – the more money you waste on a tutor, the less you’ll have to pay your pot-dealer.
