Announcements (most recent first)

  • 03/20/20: My office hours on Tuesday may be moved because of an upgrade on my internet service that day.

  • 03/17/20: Update on the organization of the "on-line" delivery of course materials:
    • UNITE will not be recording any further lectures. All lectures will be recorded separately (using zoom) and posted to a separate "Lecture Videos" module on the canvas website. All previous lectures should still be available.
    • Since this is the first time I try to post videos, there may be issues. If you have trouble accessing the videos, please let me know and I can find an alternate delivery method.
    • The lecture for March 18th has been recorded and posted to Canvas. It is split into 6 parts of 6 to 10 minutes each.
    • Quiz 6 has been posted, based on the March 18th lecture just posted. Please submit your answers by Thursday through Canvas.
    • I have added office hours TTh 10-11am, via zoom (see "https://canvas.umn.edu/courses/157600/announcements" for details).

  • 03/13/20: As you probably know, the U has implemented special plans to safegaurd against the coronavirus. This means there is no class on Monday 3/16 and all subsequent classes will be only via remote electronic access. You will be given immediate access to the UNITE videos of the lectures by visiting https://www.unite.umn.edu and clicking on "LOG IN to UNITE Media Portal". More details on other aspects of the class will be posted here by Tuesday 3/17.
