I will also use Zoom to hold virtual office hours for students who need additional help, have questions, or just want to reach out. The daily class schedule and my office hours are listed in the next section.

*If Zoom is not working properly, we will meet for class using Microsoft Teams (also known as Teams). Teams will be used as our secondary meeting platform. Students will be sent a notification if Teams is used.
