This file is frequently updated. Check the date for the last two edits and reload your browser pages each time you visit. Note the convention that F1 means "Friday of Week 1" (we use R for Thursday, and S for Saturday). Label every course submission by this day-week code for when due, even if it is late or has been postponed. Most lessons have a filecard linked to the text. Just filling out these embedded questions when they are due will earn you half-credit for your lesson-preparation. Additional credit for correct answers. But late and correct answers still receive half-credit. This counts towards your class participation IP score, which is a substantial portion of your grade.
