Use of AI in this class: I do not ask many questions that are purely "calculations". As such, I do not "think" AI will be useful. You are welcome to try HOWEVER, you will NOT be permitted to use AI on progress tests or the final exam. So even if AI can be used on the other "stuff", I suggest you don't use it. You need to learn and practice how to come up with the correct answers yourself. If you don't, you will likely not to well on tests - and potentially fail the class.
