Warm Up

Are you serious Tyler? Your gone again? Yeah……this time I will be in Academic Conferences in the top of A building. Good news is that it is only one day long and I will be back tomorrow.


There is becoming a common problem with period 3. More than five students do not seem to understand that google TRACKS everything you do. Which means when you copy and paste other students work and then turn it in as your own I can SEE it. Additionally, if you are so bold as to just delete another students name from their work and put yours in I can see that as well. You will receive little to no credit for work that you turn in like this. Lastly, If you are struggling or have a problem you need to be e-mailing me or talking to me far before 11:30 pm the night before I turn in grades. My work e-mails are sent directly to my phone and I will respond back to you (typically within an hour). Do not procrastinate in this course or try to cheat because everything is monitored and recorded. For those of your students who have been working and trying hard I greatly appreciate your work and tenacity.
