Extra Credit Opportunities for Fall 2011

All of my students can participate in these activities, but that participation will earn more points when the activity is more closely related to the content of the course. Some of these activities occur on campus during the day, some occur on campus during the evenings, some require traveling off-campus, and some carry fees. The diversity of opportunity is intended to create more opportunities for all to take advantage of some.  If you have any questions about these activities, please contact me during my office hours.
