Katelyn Bray Reflection Three This video from, Brain Games, shows how our brain is always trying to solve problems and how we constantly try to find a solution no matter how hard the problem may be. We like to think that we know how everything works and refuse to admit when we don’t. An example of one of the problems that we tried to solve was trying to guess how many stories were in the Old Testament.

    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.
