Purpose of this Assignment: This assignment highlights important decisions that I made while designing this course. For example, I consciously introduced a plethora of methods to calculate and solve computationally intensive problems (Excel, Online Calculator etc.); why do you think I chose to do that?
This is also an opportunity to provide feedback on how I can encourage you to focus on what matters in this course: understanding and comprehension rather than rote memorization and calculation.
Finally, this assignment is optional. I do not want to force you to do work for which you see no value, you will not be penalized if you choose not to do this assignment. As such, it will be graded as a 2 or a 0. If you are willing to commit the time and effort to complete this assignment to the best of your capacities and if you can demonstrate that you watched, read and understood the material, then you will be awarded 2 bonus points on your final grade in this class
