Email questions should be sent to the CMOSedu Google group (not directly to the instructor).

While the instructor may likely respond, questions for the instructor (only) should be asked in person during his office hours and not via email or addressed to the instructor and sent to the CMOSedu Google group.



No laptops or Internet appliances can be used during lectures or exams (no e-books).

No late work accepted. All assigned work is due at the beginning of class.
