This movie is a silly musical comedy, written for the "General Public" (not just mathematicians... but there are a few math-only jokes thrown in as well...) http://www.claymath.org/publications/Fermats_Last_Tango/ This link tells you more about this very silly musical. See you there!

Submitting assignments via Blackboard (ignore last year's instructions):

  1. Go to Blackboard and click on CIT 597-001 2009C.
  2. Click the  Assignments  tab.
  3. Click View/Complete Assignment: Assignment name.
  4. From here on, it should be fairly obvious how to upload and Submit your assignment.

Important changes from past years:

  • I have to post the assignment via Blackboard before you can submit your solution.
  • You can only submit once. If you need to change your submission, you have to contact me or the TA and ask us to discard your previous submission.
  • When you submit, you can submit more than one file for the assignment.
    • However, we don't want to have to download more than one file; so to submit multiple files, please zip them and submit the zipped file.
    • Note: "Zip" means .zip, not .rar or .tar or some other random format that we may or may not be able to open easily.
September 14, 2009 The first quiz will be Monday, September 24. It will cover XHTML (mostly, how it is more restricted than HTML), CSS (mostly, the kinds of selectors), and http://www.upenn.edu/pennnews/flu/#measures (no kidding).
