I expect students to prepare for each class by reading their assignments and completing their homework. I will lecture and encourage interactive discussion on the material. At the end of each class, I will host a lab on Microsoft Access. The purpose of the lab is to expose students to the capabilities of Access and prepare them to complete the database project due at the end of the term.
