Classes for Fall 2016
Note on Textbooks and Supplies for all of my classes:
Texts and supplies are all listed on the PC Bookstore web page.
You will absolutely need the ICLICKER for class. It is not optional. We will start using it on the first day and students who come prepared with it on that day will be rewarded with extra credit points. By the second meeting we will be using it for real quizzes that include required points. We will be using the radio frequency receiver for the clickers, not any web based applications, so a phone AP will not do the job. I use the local radio receiver instead of the web system because it is much more reliable. ANY version of iClicker is fine, but it must be an authentic iClicker to work with the receiver.
