If a link does not open, right-click on the link and save it to a location such as your desktop or documents folder. Then open it from the saved location.

"REFRESHING" THE PAGE:
Please "refresh" this page each time you access it to be sure you are not accessing an older version of the page in your computer's memory.

NOTE ON PAPER COPIES:
I will photocopy or print any document for any student, as long as the request is made ahead of time and not the day we are doing the activity.
Hard copies of documents will be made available to those who need them, but I am encouraging students to use the web site whenever possible.
