Course Syllabus: Syllabus revised 11/23/20

Course Notes: DistanceEd  The instructor for this course has expressed a preference to operate the course as distance education. This means no physical classroom is assigned for this course. This also most likely means synchronous internet videoconferencing class sessions during the day(s) and time(s) when the course is scheduled to meet. However, other, more flexible modalities are possible, such as not using some of the scheduled class sessions to meet but instead supplementing with asynchronous distance education techniques. More details should be made available from the instructor via their syllabus or via other means as the start of the semester nears.

This class will meet on January 11,12,13,14,15,2021 from 9 AM - 12:00 PM and 1-2:50 PM with 10 minute break each day. The final exam will be on Saturday January 16, 2021 at 9 AM.
