“javert would teach upper level mathematics” – wow Javert as a mathematician that is…extremely fitting. He would be one of those professors who are very competent but then don’t even know the student’s name.
he would be indeed
he’d be a very good professor and would help anyone who needed it but he’d be a little aloof and kind of intimidating
I feel like he’d be alright.
I mean I think he’d teach math in a very “rules” kind of way. Like almost formulae based? But he’d be /really/ good at grading. Because he’d be consistent and objective so you’ll never be surprised with what you got or what someone else got and he’d probably write down what you did wrong and how to do it correctly but I have a feeling he would neveer write “Great Job!”. And he’d probably give a rediculous homework load and expect every one to meet his high expectations (which I guess is a good thing). And I think a majority of the students would find his lecturing style boring as he’d stay on topic and most likely wouldn’t add much humonr.
I don’t know, I feel like his e-mail replies would be formal, long and wordy (as his dalogues in the book seemed long and wordy). But I mean at least you’d get a reply pretty quickly.
oh, I don’t know about that- I think he would be pretty /direct/ about the concepts that he was trying to teach, and he would leave the students to make the intuitive leaps in whatever way they could grasp most easily, in lecture anyway. and he would have a pretty heavy emphasis on proofs.
he would definitely be a professor who would be a better teacher one on one than in lecture I think
you’re right about the grading
his dialogues are somewhat wordy, but we’ve seen that his /writing/ isn’t really, it’s pretty succinct- possibly because he hates doing it he would keep it short
