I think its very reasonable for an instructor to give a homework problem they can't do. I don't think its really appropriate on an exam.
Heh. Sometimes it might just pay off for a bright student.

That's the coolest description that I've ever seen.
A good teacher doesn't even necessarily teach the subject matter; s/he teaches you how to learn.
That, incidentally, is one of the reasons that PF is such an awesome learning environment.
Yeah, unfortunately, I've seen professors sadistic enough to push you off that cliff and watch you plummet to your academic death, so to speak. Fortunately, these are in the minority.
