I had a teacher that was realistic, he said ” I don’t expect you to memorize all the the formulae and answers, I DO expect you to know how to FIND the formulae and answers”.
He gave open book quizzes and exams, it still wasn’t easy but he made the questions similar to ones in the textbook so if you couldn’t remember exactly how to do it we had an example to help find the answer.
I firmly believe that the majority of educators believe in “learning is not supposed to be fun” and “we had to suffer through learning this stuff, and you’re going to suffer too “
