Katia - that's great!

Well done on Lab 1.  That looks a big piece of work


math stuff

I need to re-take a math class, so I think the best thing to do to prepare for that would be to do all the old homeworks that I didn't get done when I was taking the class.

I would like to do one a week for the whole summer. Let's see if I can actually do that.

Goal for May 23-30- review sections covered with HW 1, do HW 1, start cheat sheet

Learn how to complete the square!!!
