Discussions and extra credit:

I'll be holding a weekly online discussion Thursday nights at 6 pm (This time may be changed--I'll email you and let you know if it changes). You'll get an email invitation about 5:45. Click on the link, sign in to D2L, install what it says to install, say yes to the various things, and you will end up in a D2L online room. Come ready to listen, ask and answer questions.

The discussions are optional, but you can earn up to 5 extra credit points per week by attending and being prepared (3 points for attending, up to 2 points for preparation assessed by mini-quizzes at the beginning and end of the session). Maximum extra credit from discussions sessions is 50 points. (These count as "homework" points, but it is possible to get more than 100% in the homework category)
