Google Classroom will be our digital platform for this course. You will be able to find everything needed to complete your at home work, as well as much of the work we do in class. You can also contact me directly through Google classroom about any assignment. 
 
This year, we will begin sending some labs home. Be on the lookout for an "At-home lab equipment use agreement" coming home with your lab kit. 
 
Our syllabus and safety policies can be found both on google classroom, and using the link on the right hand side of this page.
