As the class progresses, certain questions will be asked by multiple students.  Thus, we have elected to place a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section on the website.  We ask that you visit this section often to make sure that we have not already addressed your question.  This section will also be used to relay questions asked in one lab session to the other lab session.  You are responsible for any information posted in the FAQ section.
