As a former college instructor I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve heard the words: “Why do I have to learn this?” and the many times that I’ve seen that thought go through your head - I can tell by the rolling of your eyes, throw down of your pen and that annoyed sigh). I’ll be honest, there are some topics that I felt the same way about teaching (flashback to teaching hard-drive read-head algorithms in 2015, but I digress). But let me tell you, as instructors, there is a reason to our madness – and it’s not one-too-many cat videos that we’ve watched (as if there’s such a thing). As I realize those reasons are not overtly obvious I’ve made a handy list! Having these in the back of your mind might make drudging through that Fibonacci sequence algorithm a little less onerous.
