ANNOUNCEMENTS:

1.     Marks for the Mid-term Test are available here.

2.    Anyone who misses a lab for whatever reason, it is not enough to send me a MSAF notice. You must go to see your lab TA Mostafa to re-arrange a time to do your lab. Otherwise you will not get any mark for that component of the course.
