-- NO CLASS: ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE DAY --

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

1. Safe option: Attend one Mathematics presentation before 11:30am*. Submit your attendence verification ticket by Monday, Jun 2

2. Risky option: Attend one science related presentation*. 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 Monday, Jun 2
