Mr. Papagayo's Homepage

2013-2014

Welcome everyone! Here you will find links to individual class websites that contain assignments descriptions and summaries of what we did in class. What you will NOT find here, of course, is class notes -- you will have to obtain those from friends in case you were absent. Most handouts will be posted unless otherwise stated.

IMPORTANT DATES

TEACHEREASE - Despite what the contract states I have reverted to TeacherEase, which requires a separate login created with the email you provided to me.
