Saturday update for Nutrition and Health 255 – August 29, 2020

I have a few notices for the class:

1. This is the Textbook for the course:

Some of you have emailed me asking for confirmation of the Textbook.  Students in class are buying this book from many sites, including the Cengage site, where you can get an Ebook version.

2.  The other book for the course is now available:

Obesity Explosion Order Page 8-28-2020

The link for this book is:

The print book should be available in a few days.  The reading assignments for this book start on September 15, 2020.


3.  The times of the Live lectures are:

Tuesday 2:15 PM – 3:35 PM on the Canvas Site

Thursday 2:15 PM – 3:35 PM on the Canvas Site

Many students have emailed me asking whether the Live lectures are mandatory.  The lectures are recorded and you can watch them whenever you wish.  However, because of the online Lecture quizzes, you will need to watch the lectures within a week if you wish to do well on the quizzes.  The Canvas site will be up and running by Monday at the latest.  The only other top concerns are the mid-term exams.  As I indicated, there will be several times available to take the two mid-term exams.  The final exam needs to be taken at the time set by Rutgers.  The official Final exam time is: December 15, 2020 at 12:00 pm


4.  On the schedule of classes Excel Spreadsheet I sent out a few days ago, the hours for the class are wrong.  It was a mistake.  I have corrected it.  The hours on the Syllabus and announced on this Blog site are correct.
