As we start penetrating the second half of the semester and the material for this class, you will want to pay particular attention to the fact that the remaining modules 7, 8, 9 and 10 are due at two week intervals. To some extent this is due to an increase in the complexity of the material, but it is also an attempt to give you greater latitude in budgeting your time as the semester comes to a close. These are absolutely terrible modules to put off to the last minute. But if you approach them in a reasonable way you will probably feel like you have more time to finish than usual.

I am a little busy working on other classes right now, so it may be next week before I get your Module 6 journal entries all finished.

A student just pointed out that the video for Chapter 16 contains some irritating repetitions and pictures pop up at stupid times. I will try to get that fixed pretty quick, but meanwhile you may find it easier to simply view the slides for this video.


Thank you Andrew!

We are just about midway through the semester, with the Module 5 materials being due this weekend.

I'll have Module 4 feedback done by the end of this week.

Be sure to let me know if you have restarted your journal after I have moved it to the inactive folder. for having missed two entries in a row.

And also be absolutely sure you are writing all of your late entries in blue. Failure to do this is telling me that they are on time, which is cheating and which will result in failing the course when detected at the end of the semester.  If you have neglected this requirement until now, go back and change your entries now. If you can not remember, click through your revision history under the file tab.

The grades for Module tests 1 and 2 have been curved. Original grades for both tests are now 2 points higher for those who took the test on time. This is not ordinary procedure. As the semester goes on and students start to understand what is necessary to succeed, test scores typically improve. Test scores were very much improved for Module 3- Good work!- which will not be subject to a curve.

Module 4 is due at the end of the week. It covers 4 chapters, so please plan your week accordingly.

I'll start giving feedback on Module 3 journal entries about midweek.
