Back when I was at RIT our math instructor tried to teach the class that i^2 = 1. The rest of the class accepted that but I challenged.

He got sarcastic and told me that if I had been paying attention, instead of napping in the back of the room, I'd understand.

I challenged him again when he stated that i^3 = i. By this time the rest of the class was paying attention and checking their books. I gained a couple of backups.

When he came up with "i^4 = -1" I didn't have to say a word; the rest of the class was all over him.

Outcome: That afternoon I and two others had a visit to the "Head of the Math Dept's" office and the next week we had a new instructer.
