Five class meetings will be online. Please check your City Tech email for the zoom link. It will be the same link for each class. Those classes are marked in blue.

I will be teaching the online classes in V111. If any student prefers to join me in the classroom: more stable internet connection, camera use, quiet environment, you are welcome to join me and take the class from the classroom!

Ten class meetings will be in-person in V111. Those classes are marked in black.
