Regarding the grading system in this semester; it will be the same as the first semester: 65% for doing the textbook, plus 3 paragraphs worth 10% each, plus or minus 5% = 100% . (You lose points for being absent due to oversleeping and you gain points for being active in class and asking questions, etc.) Please note that I will be grading your paragraphs more strictly than in the first semester. Please check your paragraph before you send it to me.
Regarding our next class; next Monday there are no classes. Our next class is on Thursday, October 29th.
