Weekly Schedule Spring 2014

If class is cancelled due to snow or some other event, the activities list will be changed. Changes will be posted as soon as I can do so. I have built in a couple of open activity days so that, if there are no classes cancelled by the college, you can use this lab time for working on your assignments. We may also do additional in-class exercises so be sure to come on those days.

Remember, if you are sick or have to be out for other reasons, you should make every attempt to keep up with the work! Notes on the assignments will be posted. You can always email me with questions. It is a good policy to email me that you are going to miss class, letting me know why as well.
