This is a reminder that the Final is next week, on Monday 12/16 at 11:30 am. Please arrive promptly. Don’t forget to review the last post with the terminology and expanded format for the quiz.

In addition, I have posted the supplementary extra credit assignment that involves manipulating some code under Class Downloads on our OpenLab website. Please remember all extra credits are optional, and all are due at the end of finals week on Friday 12/20 by midnight.

Lastly, thanks for letting me know about Maurizio Cattelan’s banana  in Miami Basel. I thought you would like to read how locals in Miami are using the incident to raise important issues of social equity.

See you on Monday!
