We will be using Piazza for class discussions and announcements. Please check to make sure you can access the Piazza board for this course. If you have a question that may be of general interest to your fellow students, post it on Piazza rather than emailing me directly. This allows others to answer your question or benefit from my answer. I will check the Piazza forum regularly and respond as quickly as I can. To access Piazza, log into Canvas and click the "Piazza" link in the navigation bar on the left.

We will also be using Canvas for project submission, online quizzes, and grade tracking. Please be aware that your Canvas final grade is not your true course final grade--it is only an approximation. See the syllabus for details on how your final grade will be determined.

Please let me know as soon as possible if you have questions or run into any technical issues using the class website.

Have a great semester!
