The worst math class I ever had was not taught by such a teacher. It was taught by a teacher who probably knew his stuff, but was simply uninterested in teaching, apparently regarding students with contempt. Since he could neither fail everyone or teach anything, he gave 'C's for raw test scores in the 10% range.
