As I mentioned earlier, I will miss the classes on Feb 6th and 8th due to travel. I am hoping to finalize my "make-up" plan by next Tuesday. My current thinking is to make-up/pre-record one of the classes next week, and make the other one up during the course of the semester (probably just before Spring break).
I am considering holding the make-up class right after the normal class on Thursday (in the same room)--with a short break (so people don't have to come for a separate meeting on Friday).
This is just a heads up. If you have any comments/concerns, let me know.
