Week Thirteen: "Renewable Energy Resources"

This is a list of the things we need to understand and accomplish this week. All the links in the box above go to items on this page. I suggest printing out this page and checking off the items as you complete them. This will help you to keep focused and up-to-date. To learn more about each item, click on it or scroll down the page.

This should be the first page you come to each time you come to class, so bookmark the URL (address of page). The address won't change, but the contents will. This is where I talk to the class, recap the previous week and give an overview of the upcoming week. The previous week's home page can be read by clicking on "Archived Announcements" at the top of this page. You may need to refer to previous home pages on occasion.
