The Discussions are not simply statements of opinion. They are intended to allow you to expand upon and apply the principles discussed in your textbook, the lectures, and/or other research you conduct. Each week a question will be posed for your consideration. Before answering, you should review the chapters covered during this week and the lectures.


It is strongly encouraged that your initial post be posted by 11:59 PM ET on Thursday. It should be at least 250 words. This MUST be in your own words. Do NOT copy and paste from the Internet. You MAY use quotes from a source, but those quotes will NOT count towards your 250 word count requirement. Please do not plagiarize. If you use a quote, you MUST put quotation marks around it AND you MUST cite the source at the end of your post. It is NOT simply enough to put a source at the end. You should also include at least one reference in your post. Do NOT use Wikipedia or Yahoo! Answers as a source.


You should then make at least two additional posts to other students on either topic. These posts should be at least 100 words and be substantive in nature. While pleasantries such as “I agree” or “great job” are nice, they will not count as one of your required posts. Your posts should be on at least 3 separate days with all being completed by 11:59 PM ET Sunday.

Science is hardStudying science is not easy for anyone. People who become scientists do not do so, because it is easy, or they have a ‘knack for it.’ As shown in the table below, many scientists struggle with understanding math; are dyslexic; are on the autism spectrum; or have a physical disability. Despite these difficulties, they still chose to become scientists. People become scientists because they like the challenge; they understand that all successes require a long journey with many failures; and they have a burning desire to know: 1) how and why things are the way they are; 2) if things have always been that way; and 3) if they will continue to be that way in the future.


Watch this video of Temple Grandin talking about how autism can be an asset when studying animal behavior.

Remember that participation is required on a minimum of three days through 11:59 PM ET Sunday. You are required to respond to at least 2 classmates.
