Why did you make us write a report before talking with us about this? So you would have thought about report-writing before our class So you might know what things you didn’t know but needed to know So you would learn more in today’s class. Don’t worry – draft 2 is coming down the road! 6

Project 2: Traffic crossing REPORTS : In each report, your team is making a compelling argument (convincing your audience) about your claims (i.e. problem statement, best solution selected from alternatives, the effectiveness of chosen solution, etc.). As identified in the User-Centered Design presentation delivered in Week 7b, to make a compelling argument, you must help your audience draw the same conclusion you did by sharing the supporting evidence you gathered (both data and reasoning).” 7

What students are saying

    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.
