Wasn't that pond so peaceful and lovely!

Here is the link to the GoogleDoc PowerPoint - I'm glad to know this works!
Nic is the coordinator this week.  If anyone edits the document, please let me know
so that I can check for correctness.

Don't forget the reverse lectures for Friday!

Remember, there will be a lab quiz next Monday.

I've also assigned the projects.  Read the instructions and be prepared with questions this week.

I have made a new link to all the reverse lecture worksheets - check the
syllabus for due dates, and be prepared to discuss your findings!


Remember that we are meeting at 1pm for field trips - see the syllabus.

If you have professors holding you past 12:50, contact me!  I will put a stop to that.


 
I am in the process of completely re-building this site after a recent computer meltdown.
Please let me know if you find broken links.

Thanks!

In 2009 I read an astonishing commentary on world poverty and hunger.  I want you to know what is really
going on with 44% of the world's population.  Yes, I said 44%.  Click on this pdf file, and put the word "generational" in
search line.  Or else, scroll to page 21.  Read every word of this commentary and give me some non-trivial feedback.
What can you do?  What WILL you do?
