Handouts

You’d think the syllabus and schedule would provide all the info you need for a course, wouldn’t you? But I’ve found over the years that it can be helpful to provide additional information. To ensure that you read the information, I even give you an assignment. What else is there? Let’s see.

Teaching, grading, and such

Grading
