Algorithms Tentative outline

Class, Note the following.

Send Me an Email with ALGORITHMS as the subject.  I will build my class email list these emails.  DO IT NOW.

Dreamspark accounts for Windows & Visual Studio downloads will be generated on Monday, January 25 based on the student’s email address in WebWorld.  If there is no email or a “bad” email address, they will NOT be able to download the software.  Please emphasize this to your students every class next week.
