If you can't attend that day, you can slip the paper under my door before noon on the due date. Late papers will not be accepted. Solutions will be posted on Canvas on the due date. (Look under "files" on the menu at the left.) HW#12 (which would otherwise be due on Thanksgiving weekend) will be collected on the following Monday. HW#14 will be assigned but not collected.

Your current grade data will be available on Canvas .
