In this course, you will maintain a journal that chronicles your progress throughout the course. Your journal should include the hours you've worked, descriptions of progress / setbacks, and any other information you'd like to share!
Note that your journal will be worth a significant portion of your grade, so make sure to keep it updated.
Insert a link to your journal on this page (we included 2 examples from previous years). Include contact information and relevant background. Additionally, here are the journals from last year's class. To set up your own journal, follow these instructions.
