You can click on the underlined items below to go to different pages with the information described.
First off, Web-Browser Basics describes some very elementary things you need to be able to do to use our course Web Pages to best advantage. Or go to Netscape's how-to site. You will learn how to move around within and between Web pages, how to print a Web document, how to save one for later use, how to locate search tools (with directions for use) that help you locate documents of interest to you -- and how to find out ways to do things not covered in these basic instructions. (There is also Microsoft's "Browser Basics" page, but it's actually for people who are already familiar with the basics and want to know more.)
The Course Schedule lists the due dates for all reading and writing assignments, along with the three examinations. I have broken it into several separate web pages. Schedule 1 covers assignments through the first couple of weeks of the course, by which time the bookstore should be able to get in enough copies of our course text book to cover the extra enrollment that has developed. Schedule 2 covers assignments from then up until the Mid-Term Exam. Schedule 3 gives assignments between the Mid-Term and the Final.
"Texts for the Course" tells you where to get the textbook required for the course. (This semester there is only one.)
"Goals and Methods of the Course" explains what we will be up to, and why.
"Grades" tells you how grades will be determined in the course.
I have also compiled a List of Web Links to sites that may be of interest to you in connection with our course. (Some of the links here are no longer current, and many more could be compiled if I had the time. But the 5 sites linked to at the beginning are quite up-to-date and rich, for our purposes.)
