    "Again? I though we addressed this a while ago!" And yet people still do it. This is just a way for me to send out a mass warning before I go on a suspension spree :)

    maye perhaps have a givens part to the academy problem so they can generate a larger amount of problems from one single problem|dw:1358948991872:dw|

    that way they can generate numerous problems rather than just switching numbers... the last part would be a trig function that you'd need to find out , randomly generated of course
