During this course the videos will be updated periodically, especially if a mistake is pointed out to me, so it is best to download only a few at a time.

Even though this is an online class, I am available to answer any questions and provide help at any time. Please do not hesitate me to contact me as needed. If you run into a snag in your assignment, please continue working on the other parts, as you can, while you are waiting for my answer to your questions.  I will respond to your questions as quickly as possible.  If you are absent from class or fall behind in your assignments, please work on they from your home computer, so that you will not have points deducted from your grade for late assignments.

Monday, Aug. 29 - The PQ visualization is designed to be a fun and challenging visualization problem. Download the Excel file and open it. You will see two targets, a "P" and a "q", which are basically mirror images of each other. You will notice the front side of of the letter has a beveled edge around the perimeter. This will be the key to distinguishing the front and back. So in your mind you have to rotate the twenty 2D models and determine whether it is a P or a Q
