School has been in session for a few weeks, so it's time to restart the "For CM Students" section of this webpage. I do this to make sure we're all on the same page. It's simply a run down of the things coming up. I hope it helps.

What's Going On In Classes
CM 121: BRING YOUR GOODYEAR PLANS TO CLASS AND LAB. We will be estimating portions of Goodyear for the next several weeks. We will also discuss parts of it during the lecture. Specifically this week, we be covering Earthwork in Tuesday's lecture and Site Utilities in Thursday's lecture. In lab we will be estimating the cost of select earth moving operations for Goodyear.
CM 126: We will be covering two cases this week: 1) Case #3 - Scope Coverage and 2) Case #4 - Site Contamination. I apologize for the late-minute posting of Case #3. Be sure to complete the quiz associated with Case #3. I'll try to post Case #4 by Tuesday.
Assignments associated with Case #1 and Case #2 are due this week (Monday and Wednesday respectively). See SacCT for details.
Lastly, Monday's student presentations are by Kurt Young and Thang Nguyen. Wednesday's are Steven Sleek and Dane McDonald.
I teach people who will be building our country's infrastructure.
