Over on meta.maths.SE this question was asked:

Teaching someone who doesn't put much effort in

While certainly off-topic for meta.maths.SE, I think it's a reasonable and interesting question and might be suitable for academia.SE. However, it's not apparent from the Academia FAQ that it'd be on-topic.

Question: Should this question be migrated to academia.SE?

[UPDATE] This question has now been moved to: Teaching classmates who don't put much effort in

It needs some cleaning up, but there's a valid question buried in there. I think we could take the question, but it would have to be worked on a bit before we'd open it for response.

  • What kind of stuff would need to be changed?

  • The main issue is that the teaching aspect, rather than "group study" factor, would need to be emphasized. (The former is in keeping with the aim of the board; the latter is not.)
