  • Class Discussion List
    An email list that I will use to communicate with you as needed between class meetings and that you can use to broadcast questions or comments of any kind related to the course. For instance, I particularly encourage you to use the list for discussions of homework problems and questions about textbook readings. I will monitor the discussion and contribute myself when I feel it might be useful.

    Subscribe to the list using the list's subscription management web page.

    Once you have subscribed to the list, you can send messages to everyone else who has subscribed by addressing them to

  • College of Science Emergency Procedures
