Safety Discussions

Discussion Starters

Questions

Please ask questions about the course on this discussion forum.  I like it when students ask questions on this discussion board as all students in the class can read the question and the answer.   When a student posts on this discussion board, I receive an email with the question. My response time will be the same as it would be if you sent me an email.  When you post a question on the question forum, it is possible another student has the answer and that a student might reply even faster than I can.
