I hope you enjoy your stay
My name is Tyler Deaton. I am an incoming freshman. I am
participating in Summer START to get a head start on school. My intended
major is and I chose it because I like
working with computers and coding stuff like this homework assignment. I
can't wait to learn more programming languages.
My favorite hobby is playing video games. I enjoy this because it allows me to relax from intense schoolwork. Some of my favorite games are League of Legends and Counter Strike Global Offensive. I like all genres but especially multiplayer games. I prefer multiplayer because I like the competitive aspect.
The E115 points system is very convenient because it allows you to track your progress throughout the course. Since it is a pass or fail course, even the final can be skipped if one performs well enough throughout the first weeks. I am hoping to get into this situation myself by doing well on the next test. I think more classes should adapt the points system because it is a lot easier to track your grade compared to the traditional grading scale. Overall I am satisfied with the grading scale.
