I’m really glad I got to TA while I was at Stanford. It just opened my eyes to a lot of things; the other side, if you will.
Anyway, for the class I’m currently TAing, people are allowed to work in groups, but they need to write up homeworks separately, and note who they collaborated with.
It’s curious, because some people will credit other people, and those people apparently don’t realize it, because it’s not mutally credited. What happens is you get these fascinating chains. So A, B, and C will credit each other. But then D will credit A, as well and E and F. And E will credit A, D, and G and H. I mean it’s crazy. There’s this one web in particular that fascinates me. I just wonder what the heck the nature of their collaboration was like.
