etymology: term coined by Dr. Andrew Bucki in reference to how mathematics are learned in America.
n. a student who does not think for himself/herself, but instead mindlessly copies homework problems by changing the numbers from sample problems.
v. the act of mindlessly copying homework.
If a copy machine is particularly bad at copying homework, it can be dubbed a cheap copy machine.
Bucki: so just now, you are all cheap copy machines, but that's okay, that is how the American education system has trained you like a dog in a circus.
