    I believe the Presentation Schedule and the Topic Approval page are up to date. Please take a look at them and let me know if I've missed anything.

    Several of you have chosen presentation dates but do not yet have a topic. This is fine but be aware that if you do not have a topic at least a week before your date you will be removed from the schedule.

  6. -- Mon Aug 14 17:29:50 2017 --
    First Assignment This assignment is worth 10 points extra credit if it is turned in by 8/31/2017. In any case it must be done before I will grade any other assignments.
