Higher Learning my ***

I was just studying past papers for my physics exam and I came across a question that goes as follows:
"...calculate the circumference of the triangle shown in the picture below..."

I was like.... what!!!

Now I, as well as any 4th grader now that a circumference in specifically for circles and parameter is for other objects... Now why would a professor in university not know that and to add to that he laced that in a exam for students to answer, a student might just as well draw a circle and calculate the circumference of that circle (trust me that's not what the wanted to do because i have the answer sheet).
So a student who is not well informed in english could easy take this for granted and start applying it in his day to day career.

    perimeter , circumference it is all (mo7eet: ocean) in arabic. Masheeha ya zalameh.
    If you start being that "specific" about such "minor" details you will end up with a heart attack before you graduate

    LOOL, I'm happy that our tests are made and corrected by other teachers in the UK :D

    yeah, and bout my boxing, i used to play for my city Kristianstad, but now i stoped going to matches cuz i got braces :P, so i'm more training now.
    and for skateboarding, its winter now and the roads are slippery , so if you wana play it at this time of the year, you would have to go to indoor skatebording ramps.

    Acidfog,See now i thought their is only one academy, and every dude who wants to become a pilot can only sign up there

    Nizar, man that's how it was back in highschool, but apparently university is more advanced :D ... shit man i hated my braces, a waste of two years of not eating anything you want (basicaly gum, or sometimes) and then when i took them off, it was the same.. :P ok not to that extent but more or less
