Class Procedures and Reminders
Extra Credit. Midterms will be starting up in some classes soon, so stacking up some extra credit points is a good idea. That way, you can give yourself some time off in this class — and remember: you can do extra credit any time during the week if you have a little time to spare; you don't need to wait for the end of the week.
Project Stack. I've read and replied to the Project assignments that were turned in on Saturday, so you should have comments back from me. If you turned something in on Sunday, it's probably still in the Stack, and you can check the stack to make sure I received your assignment.
