A Green Approach to Paper Use
Please refer to your course syllabus and course schedule electronically.
The syllabus is posted below and will not change--you can access it here any time you wish to refer to the class policies.
The homework schedule is a work in progress and will change; refer to it regularly and do not print--you are likely to end up with an out of date version if you print.
