Rollback: WID has sent an email to Prof. Minuchehr with suggested revisions, and looks forward to seeing a resubmission of this course.

Rollback: WID asked for rollback. Please let the professor know that the course description is too long - it should only be 1-2 sentences. Also the learning outcomes listed look more like a description of what students will do in the course. However, in the attached syllabus, there are some excellent learning outcomes. I suggest that the professor use 3-4 of these instead.
