This class uses Campuswire for all communications between instructors, TAs and students. The course code is 2728.

Posting Policies:

  1. In order to ensure that students reap the most benefit from the forum, all posts should be made visible to all students. Anonymous posting will be enabled, but private queries (those made exclusively to course staff) will be ignored. If a query truly warrants a private posting, it should be conveyed via email.
  2. Due diligence must be performed by the student to ensure that their posts are not duplicates or extensions of other posts. If a post is an extension of an existing thread, it must be published within that thread. Campuswire queries that are asked and/or answered in an existing post will be ignored and/or removed.
