It's All Latin To Me
As an assignment I was told to translate and explain the reason the following Latin quote is relevant to this class: "dimidium facti qui coepit habet: sapere aude, incipe". "He who has begun is half done: dare to know, dare to begin!". The quote means that once you start something your halfway there, and you just have to try new thing without being afraid of failing. It is very relevant to this class because this new style of teaching is new to almost all of us. We don't know how it will play out, but we wont ever know if we don't try. Beginning is the hardest part because we aren't following the "status quo" but just because its not normal doesn't mean its not right. The quote is totally relevant to our class and it really does explain how we are going to take this chance in hopes of adapting to this new style.
