This week, please:

  1. Read the Syllabus carefully – make sure you have a printed copy to refer to.
  2. Read the Calendar carefully – post a printed copy on your bulletin board where you can’t miss it!
  3. Read online notes 1a and 1b – below – and the text Chapter 1.  The textbook is only available online.  The syllabus and Canvas (“Pearson Text Registration” link) have all the details.
  4. Lab 1 is due Tuesday, July 20.  This is a Quiz on Canvas.  You can take as much time as you like; it is open book; but you do have to do it all in one sitting.  Allow about 2-3 hours for it.
  5. Make a contribution to the online discussion forum on Canvas by Saturday midnight. This is a great way to get to know your classmates.
  6. Record your reading on Canvas by Sunday midnight.

If you have any questions, get in touch with me right away!  Email works best …

I send out a weekly announcement through Canvas. If you did not get this announcement, please check the email address you have on the Canvas site or the Announcements on the Canvas Site.  The announcement is also here.
