Enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving!!! 
Dr. Maser's Statement: While everyone may have done really well the first quarter, remember - we did test corrections for three exams. This can give us a FALSE sense of security with regard to knowing the material. Don't rely on test corrections.
Moving forward => Make sure you listen to all the directions given and do your BEST on the labs, Castlelearning, & assignments from the workbook. Homework must be done! I was unpleasantly surprised today at how many people did not finish the homework or complete the labs correctly.
Background Research was also due last Wednesday, so... hopefully it is done. 
Let's keep it POSITIVE and do the best that we can, ALL the Time!!! 
I am here to answer any of your questions! If I can do anything at all, let me know:)
