Today's Quote: 


Yesterday wasn't very productive. There was hardly enough time to give students to use the Chromebooks to get caught up. I did go over the homework and how I analyze the data collected. Students were reminded that if they didn't do the NYT article, the highest grade they could earn was a "B".

I presented the homework that will be collected today. (Theory VS. Law Explained) and the associated Google Form
