Please see the course description for an explanation of how this course works. It may seem complicated at first, but all the pieces do work together to enhance understanding. The course description also gives important details on our policies for missed exams, and quizzes. Also, please consult the syllabus to help you keep track of what is due when.


We will be using i>clickers in every lecture. You can use either the older v1 or the newer v2 i>clickers. If you have not already done so, please register your clicker by clicking here and follow the instructions. Having another student answer questions using your clicker is considered cheating.
