This class is a work in progress. I have put together a syllabus including schedules, assignments, presentations etc. It may change but it is a best estimate of how I see this class proceeding. We are an experiment, and if I find that you as a class would like to expand on a topic, the schedule may change. There are no quizzes or finals in this class. Grades are based on participation, presentations, assignments and your final journal. Please let me know how we are doing!
