Since we haven't had a chance to discuss it, please review the reading from 3/15 (Froomkin) if it's not fresh in your mind. Then, two more readings:
Tuesday, April 27: Perritt (pp. 164-192)
Thursday, April 29: Goldring (pp. 322-351)
Also, when I met with you all about your projects last week, I told some of you to try to get me certain additional writeups either right before or right after break. You know who you are!
Otherwise, keep working on your projects, and have a great break! -- NSB
Hey, gang, I'm BACK! We'll actually be having class meetings twice this week, on Tuesday and Thursday. Since we haven't had class for weeks, I don't feel too bad about asking you to come early during your lunch hour; how about if we say class will start at around 12:20, so that people have time to grab some food in the cafeteria and bring it with them to class?
The main focus of the week will be discussions of your projects, but this will take place in private meetings -- please make sure to sign up for a block of time with me! (Those of you in a group project should work together and sign up for a time you can all make it.) The signup sheet is outside of Mr. Flynt's office in Science Hall, but will move to my office (Steiner 100, basement) when I arrive on Sunday. The meetings will also take place in my Steiner office.
I don't want you to view the meeting with me as a major ordeal to be endured; I won't bite. Rather, what I want is a chance to talk with you, to understand where you are on your projects (yes, I know it's still early!), and to be helpful in any way that I can. To structure the discussion, I recommend that you (and you partners, if you're in a group project) come prepared to answer a few basic questions:
In addition, we'll be having normal class meetings, and so of course there are new reading assignments:
Reading assignment: Finish Brin.
Read Brin chapters 6-8.
AGAIN: Send ~1 page project proposal to email@example.com.
Read Brin chapters 4-5
Read Brin chapters 1-3
Send ~1 page project proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
