Horrible programming student here.
I have to make an 8x8 checkerboard using python & this graphics module a professor made.
As of right now this is what I have
from cs1graphics import *
paper = Canvas(400,400)
blackSquare = Square(50, Point(75,25))
I know I need to use the modulus operator (%) within a loop to make it so that it inserts a black square in every even square, but I can't think of how to do this shit to save my life right now.
After I put down the squares in a loop I have to actually put checkers on the image, but I think after I actually understand how to loop in the black squares I'll understand how to do that.

But as the impacts of climate change become apparent, many predictions are proving to underplay the actual impacts. Reality, in many instances, is proving to be far worse than most scientists expected.
And this shouldn't be a surprise to anyone who follows unbiased nes.

guise, i know how to derivate and integrate, and i know what integration and derivation are, but can somebody explain to me how we came to have those formulas? i mean, how did somebody discover that if we applied, say the chain rule, we would get the slope of the tangent at a determined point? how did somebody come up with integration formulas?
