CLASS METHODOLOGY:  

A small amount of time at the beginning of most class periods will be used to answer questions on the material that is due for that day.  The rest of the class period will consist of a variety of activities which will include lecture (usually by me, but you may get a turn before the year is gone), group problem solving and exploration of questions and concepts using selected software.  Periodically we will have question and answer days (see course calendar for details).  Your math/tech time will also provide ample opportunity for these ventures, along with allotted time to take your online quizzes.  It is strongly advised (shall we say required) that you prepare for each class meeting by reading the material AND by working the problems for the next class meeting.  It is solely your responsibility to prepare for class.
