Overheard: whiteboard penmanship

Physics 205B, spring semester 2012
Cuesta College, San Luis Obispo, CA

(Overheard after the end of algebra-based introductory physics lecture on Faraday's law/Lenz's law.)

Student: "I have to ask, did you ever take a course in whiteboard writing?"

Instructor: (Beat.) "Uh, what do you mean by 'whiteboard writing?'"

Student: "You know, learning how to write neatly on a whiteboard. You have better handwriting on the whiteboards than me, or teachers in my other courses."
