Weekly Agenda

Check here for the expected weekly agenda for my classes. You will also find papers you may need here (for download). If you are absent, or if you lose your materials, this is where you can print out a copy. 

In my class, there is rarely homework, unless you do not complete assignments during classtime. Anything not completed in class automatically becomes homework. Use classtime wisely!!
