-- NO CLASS: ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE DAY --

"Classwork": Complete one of the following two options:

1. Safe option: Attend two morning Mathematics presentations* (schedule/procedings here). Submit your attendence verification tickets by Friday, May 31th.

2. Risky option: Attend one science related presentation* (schedule/procedings here). Type a short 1-2 page paper on what the presentation was about and how significant mathematics from this course was involved in the project (give numerical examples from the project). If mathematics from this course was not involved in the project, it doesn't count (that's why it's risky). Submit your paper and your attendence verification ticket by Friday, May 31th.

* Poster sessions will NOT count as a presenation
