Another heads-up.. I am planning on having an in-class test on next Thursday.
I normally only have one midterm and a final, mostly because I don't like to use up class time for exams.

two mid-term tests (I assume most of you realize that having one more test is better rather than worse for you..)

You will have the opportunity during Tuesday's class time to come to the class and have a recitation session with the
ps: No--I am not trying to convert a missed class into a test--I still fully intend to make-up the Thursday's missed class too by
an extra meeting+recording during the course of the semester. I am doing the test on Thursday (which is frankly more work for us ;-)
because I have the opportunity to do so without losing class time..
