Lesson in question: https://github.com/swcarpentry/python-novice-inflammation/blob/gh-pages/_episodes/01-numpy.md

There is the implementation of parallel assignment in this example problem code:
first, second = 'Grace', 'Hopper'
but it is only referenced once before in a concept heavy portion of the lesson that focuses on functions and not variable assignment. To solve this problem, there needs to be a good understanding of parallel assignment before hand, other wise this may be a stump for many learners and detract from learning. A suggestion could be to bring up parallel assignment once earlier in the class (say when assigning variables is of discussion).
