Thu. 1/5

Note in the above Useful Links box is a link to our Homework page, where the homework is posted. On the first day of class, one step of a homework is due. There is nothing to hand in but rather just be sure you can do this Step 1, ASAP. If you are having difficultites, please contact me. My contact info is on Blackboard (see left tool bar).
Today you should have reached an email inviting you to join our social media page on Piazza. If you post a note or question on Piazza to me, I will receive an email immediately with your post. So if you are having trouble with Step 1, you can ask me about it on Piazza. In fact, if you post your question to the whole class (rather than just to the Instructor), then other students might also benefit from the answer. :^).

Fri. 12/23

For money saving textbook information, see the above Textbook box. The bookstore did not provide a field for telling students that the author provides a free PDF on the web and that either of two versions is fine.
