Students outsmarts teacher with 3×5 FEET cheat sheet

A college student outsmarted his professor by bringing in a 3×5 foot-long cheat sheet after ‘inches’ weren’t specified in the instructions. 

It was the first test day of the semester on Tuesday for assistant college professor Reb Beatty and his accounting class at Anne Arundel Community College in Arnold, Maryland. 

As per usual, he let students take the exam with a 3×5 notecard cheat sheet. 

But what Beatty forgot to do was clarify that the cheat sheet had to be 3×5 inches.

Reb Beatty (pictured), an accounting professor at Anne Arundel Community College in Arnold, Maryland, had let students bring cheat sheets with them for the first test day of the semester on Tuesday

In the photo, the student is seen conducting calculations for one of the math problems as the cheat sheet lays before him – spanning the entirety of his desk and crammed with definitions and formulas.

‘First test day of the semester and as always, I allow a 3×5 notecard,’ Beatty wrote in the caption.

‘Today, a student shows up with this. Sure enough, it is 3×5… feet. As precise as I am, apparently I never specified inches and therefore yes, it was allowed. 

‘Well played and lesson learned for me.’ 

 

Social media users praised the student’s ingenuity in outwitting the professor and the post has gone viral

The photo was first posted to Instagram before being shared on Facebook where it’s received more than 20,000 ‘reactions’ and been shared more than 17,700 times.

Social media users praised the student’s ingenuity in outwitting the professor.

‘This student has an eye for detail…That’s an excellent quality in accounting,’ wrote one user.

‘Clearly the smartest kid in class,’ commented another.

One user joked: ‘I would like to interview this person for [a] future position [with] my company.’
