Our goal is redundancy

A: You know, the funniest thing happened in today’s class today Georgina.

We were working through some of the questions together and we got up to the final one, the hardest one I’d left till last. My students were working through it and I told them to refer to the lecture slides when they didn’t now what to do. Eventually, one of the students found the worked example in the lecture slide, and when I asked him whether he needed any help, he said “nope you’ve been made redundant.” Haha!

At first I was slightly taken aback, but on reflection, I realised that was probably the best thing he could have said, meaning that I’ve done my job helping them find the answer themselves.
