Study session with Hunter and Tracy on Thursday, May 1 from 9:30-11:30 in LSCB 119

Our class is being used as a control for the team-based learning assessment. Please go to the link below and fill out the survey. We did NOT do team-based learning in this class.  They are trying to compare results from a non-team based class to a team-based class. Complete the survey, print the certificate immediately, it will not appear again. ARGHH>>>!!!  There seems to once again be no certificate! Print the final page, put your name on it. Turn it in on exam day for 3 points extra credit on the final exam.
