This class (7/24/2019) is being taught over Zoom. It will be messy. You will not be able to interact with any of the links I present. If you want, however, you can follow along - it works best if you have a second monitor, but can also work with one monitor - just be sure to use a different browser, or open a new window if you want to use the same browser.
