Why I201? How can we think logically about how to solve problems? How can we explain our solutions to others? How can we prove that our solutions are correct? In this class we will be justifying our answers and we care about being able to articulate why some statements are true/false. We will write these reasons! You’ll develop the skills to teach yourself anything.

Labs •Labs cover the same topics as the Homework due that day. •If there is no HW due in a given week, there is no quiz, but there IS a lab (except for Fall Break and Thanksgiving break). •The lab task is a time for you to practice similar problems to those appearing in the quiz. •If you do not attend the Lab you will receive a 0 for the Quiz. Exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis and follow the standard attendance policies. •If the absence is excused, you should arrange for a make-up quiz. Documentation is required, and make ups need to be taken the following week.

    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.
