I am going to have a study group class tomorrow at 5:00 p.m. It will go until about 6:15 pm. I will send a Zoom invite to those students who would like to attend. Send me an email if you would like to receive the invite. The purpose of the study session to answer any questions students might have. There will generally no new material discussed. So bring your questions.
I expect to do this once a week for most of the rest of the semester. I will have some sessions on Saturday so that those who cannot attend on Wednesday can attend that session. We can discuss that tomorrow.
I am going to record class tonight as well as September 21 and 28 for those who will miss class because of the Jewish holidays. The case questionnaires must still be turned in. For this week they can be turned in anytime this week.
