·         MISTAKE on Quiz 1 points – one of the questions accidentally is valued at 1point instead of 2.  That means that, if you have that question and answer everything correctly, you would get a 9/10 on the quiz, instead of 10/10.  Since that is the ONLY way to get 9/10, I will just fix your score by hand once the quiz is closed, rather than retract the quiz to fix this and lose all the scores for students who already finished it.

·         TA office hours are now posted on the syllabus – there are at least two hours of office hours each day of the week.  Please make use of them if you have trouble with anything we’re doing in class, or the suggested homework problems posted in e-learning, so you don’t fall behind.
