Unit 2 Discussion HYPOTHETIAL SCENARIO: Jake is driving his truck home from work on I-84 at 10:00pm. He is listening to the radio and singing loudly. He is in the center lane of a 3-lane stretch of road. Veronica is also driving on I-84 in the same direction as Jake. She is not listening to music and is travelling in the right- hand lane. As Jake moves to pass Veronica, he accidently catches the wheel with his knee, jerking his truck into the right lane, and making contact with Veronica’s vehicle. Veronica’s car is pushed to the right and veers slightly off the road into the dirt past the shoulder and near the surrounding foliage.

    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.
