The remaining 5 Lectures will proceed in the following way:

Tuesday 11-24 – Chapters 12 and 13 – Minerals Lecture – Major and Trace – there could be a whole semester class on minerals – but I will cover the basics in one lecture.  It will be exciting and earth shattering as usual!

After Thanksgiving:

Tuesday 12-1 – Lecture on Diet Assignment & Vitamin supplements – All assignment grades will be in Grade Book by Monday, 11-30 – Have you Diet Assignments available so you can ask questions.  Ask about vitamins and supplements!

I hope you are all doing well!   The Covid crisis is getting worse – thank goodness Rutgers elected for on-line courses for most classes.

In our class we had Exam 2 last week and the grades in general were quite good.  If you had a problem and could not take the exam, or you had something go wrong during the exam, please email me the next day or two. 

Last Thursday I finished the Water Soluble Vitamins.  On Tuesday (tomorrow) I will Start Fat Soluble Vitamins – Chapter 11 – my favorite area in the course.   

Tomorrow there will be a Poll put on Canvas asking you how you are doing in class and in life in general.  There are 8 questions and it is worth 8 quiz points!   All answers are accepted but you need to take the poll to get points.   It will be anonymous!  But if you have reservations about it you can email Nick (before the end of the quiz) and he will give you the points.  It will be due next Monday at 4 pm. 

The Exercise assignment is due on Thursday, 11-19.  The drop box will remain open after Thursday but you will lose a point or two for being late. 

The updated Schedule of Classes is below.  Please look through it!
