In the week of March 21, we will have conferences for the final project.  Class will not meet.  Instead, you need to sign up for a 15-minute timeslot to talk with me about your ideas for a final project.

Here is the spreadsheet you need to use to sign up.  Just type your name in the spot next to the timeslot you want.

 

There are a few rules for this spreadsheet: please follow them.

1. Sign up for one spot and one spot only. If you change your mind, sign up for a new blank timeslot and remove your name from your old one.

2. Don’t steal someone else’s spot by deleting their name and typing yours in instead. If you really need a specific timeslot, sign up early!

3. Don’t create new timeslots! If you’re late to the party and you don’t find a timeslot you like, the solution is NOT to randomly create a new timeslot!

4. Don’t delete the breaks! You want your professor to be alert and attentive during your conference, right?

(Rules 2, 3, and 4 all relate to the problem of finding a timeslot. If you are having a lot of trouble finding an existing open timeslot that works for you, email me and let’s strategize.)

5. When it comes time for your conference, please wait in the hallway a few steps away from my office, near classrooms B-336 and B-337. This is for everyone’s privacy during the conference. Please try to arrive 5 minutes early, but don’t come directly to my office, because someone else is probably doing their conference. Just wait in the hallway and I’ll let you know when we’re ready to go. When you’re waiting, please wait quietly, in order to be kind to my office neighbors. If five minutes after your scheduled conference time have passed, (in other words, if you were scheduled for 4:30 and it’s now 4:35) please come and knock on my door and let me know you’re waiting.

The purpose of this conference is to talk about your final project, so you should come to the conference with a few ideas of what you might like to do for a final project.  As a reminder, here are the guidelines for the final project.

We will talk about the final project in class on Monday, March 7.
