Welcome to a new semester. I hope your summer was restorative and enjoyable. The "other" classroom is mycomplab, which you will be exploring the first two days with exercises and practice work, so bring your laptop. The syllabus is on this site, but other than to greet you at the first of the semester, all info will be at mycomplab. I will attach docs and a video greeting on how to do that if I have time.
