The class contract

Pretty much everybody in the class signed the class contract last week (within WebAssign). One of the things you have committed to is to keep up with this news page. This does matter. During our final exam period in May some of you will be writing to complain that you can no longer get extensions on the homework. And I'll be writing back saying, "There have been several posts to the news page reminding you that homework extensions will end when the final exam period begins." Ignorance of what's on the news page will not constitute a good excuse if you're asking for special consideration. When you run into something unexpected (for example, a glitch of some sort in WebAssign or a change in a due date), check the news page as your first step toward finding an explanation. AFTER you've checked the news page, contact Jenn or me with your question.
