Clicker Questions and Quizzes: Throughout lectures, I will be asking questions that you will need to answer using your Turning Technologies clicker. These questions will be graded as “participation”, and clickers MUST be used to get credit. No clicker = no credit. Pop quizzes will also be given occasionally during lecture periods. These quizzes will be short, worth only a few points, and should help you determine how prepared you are for the tests. **Clicker questions can be a big, EASY benefit to you, or they can drag your grade down, so don’t forget to bring your clicker to class.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
