Welcome to our class blog. This blog makes your life easier, and it makes my life easier.
After each lesson I give, I will come online and post a brief description of what we did, the homework, and also links to any handouts I have passed out. Your responsibility is to check the blog, print all handouts and do what you need to do for the next class. Since we only meet twice a week, this prevents you from getting way behind, and it means I don't have to keep a constant stack of old handouts around to dig through when people come to request them later.
Easier for you. Easier for me. Hurray for the internet.
I hope it's a great year. That will depend as much on you as on me, so let's do our best to keep things lively and interesting. Please drop by to see me anytime during lunch or my office hours to say hi, I'd love to get to know you. If I am too intimidating for you to come say hi to on your own, bring a friend!
