Weekly Schedule

Remember RE-SUBMIT. If you get back a homework with errors and without a grade it means it has not been graded - you need to fix and resubmit to get a grade. Remember, all assignments including inclass assignments must be done by everyone - that includes online students and students who missed the class..

Week Information
Schedule Session Assignments due in the week after the assignment is given unless otherwise stated.
Note that the audio and Smartboard presentations for each class are posted within a couple of days.
I may add some things during the week, so double check the schedule each week!
Inclass exercises are still assignments and must be done by everyone if they appear under assignments.
Please keep copies of all work you submit until you receive your final grade at the end of the semester.
