    Theoretically, yes. However, that is not always the case. It is okay if you do not see the distinction. :)

    Can only speak of my optics, but I’ve seen grown up tears in statics classes. In the course I was in, we were referred to reference our undergraduate educations… all of it. I know that I had to order extra books, reference materials, and even referenced kahn academy a few times. While I agree with your theoretical argument, I certainly didn’t experience that, and the historical gate keeping nature of the course, arguably, lends its self to less professor support.

    That sounds more like a failure on the professor's part, not the learning methodology. And, as we know, failing professors is a rather common phenomenon.
