Student Outsmarts Professor With Hilarious Cheat Sheet For Exam

There are some students who dare to dream and act upon those dreams, and those are the kids that live on in the collective memories of their classmates.

Like that kid who proved a super hard question on an exam was actually impossible to answer, so everyone else gets extra points on their exam. Or the class president who actually makes good on their promise of putting Hot Cheetos in the cafeteria vending machine.

But then there are some who dream even bigger and take those big dreams to college. Like Elijah Bowen, who technically found a way around the 3x5 inch cheat sheet limitation proposed by his professor, Reb Beatty.

As it turns out, Bowen did technically follow the rules and brought in a 3x5 notecard. Because Beatty didn't specify the measurements, his ingenious pupil brought in a 3x5 cheat card - but he measured it in feet.

Beatty couldn't even be mad.

First test day of the semester and as always, I allow a 3x5 notecard. Today, a student shows up with this. Sure enough, it is 3x5... feet. As precise as I am, apparently I never specified inches and therefore yes, it was allowed. Well played and lesson learned for me. 

Students were applauding Bowen's boldness and creativity.

The post elicited a response from Elijah, who promised he'd give away his skateboard to Beatty if he failed the test. Because with a cheat sheet that big, you better come correct. From Beatty's response above, however, it looks like Elijah's skateboard, and grades, are in good shape.
