i>clickers

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 in your student gradebook and follow the instructions. Having another student answer questions using your clicker is considered cheating.

Be sure to refer to the i>clicker information page for more information.
