Student learning goals

General method of instruction

Welcome back from Spring break! Most of you have taken a class from me, so you know my method of operation already. I will be logged on M-F, taking the weekend off to grade assignments when they are due. Please feel free to work through the weekend, however! I will enjoy chatting with you in our discussion forums!

Recommended preparation

The best guarantee of success is staying current with your assignments and reading!

Class assignments and grading

There are 4 individual and 3 group assignments in the course. Please follow the course schedule which gives due dates for each of these.

Grades will be assigned based on University of Washington grading standards. Rubrics for each assignment will describe how points for that assignment will be distributed.


The information above is intended to be helpful in choosing courses. Because the instructor may further develop his/her plans for this course, its characteristics are subject to change without notice. In most cases, the official course syllabus will be distributed on the first day of class.
