Submitting Homework by email guidelines: Hi all, you should only submit homework by email in a worst case scenario. This creates a lot of extra work and resources if even one student does this each week. So, if you'd like your homework to be considered *on time* for grading purposes, and there is no way you can make it to class, email me homework as one black and white PDF file as soon as possible. It should be white background with black text. Any shading resulting from the picture will distort your writing when it is printed and will use extra ink. I use an app called genius scan (free) which changes pictures into pdf files. I reserve the right to revoke this privledge at any time.

Presentation Schedule: No exceptions. You must attend class all three days in order to get full credit for Project Presentation. If you'd like to use the computer for slides, email them to me BEFORE midnight of night before you are presenting. Otherwise, you may use chalk board, white board (ask me to bring markers if you'd like to have colorful options), or the projector. So that we may all make it out on time, we must stick to our schedule very strictly. There won't be any time between talks for setup, so everything must be ready to go. Ideally, you'll talk for about 7-8 minutes, then we can have a minute for a question afterward and a minute to transition to the next talk.
