### Notes from St. Louis ...

I have corrected the HS assignment for the 12:00/1:00 Geometry sections ... #13-21 is correct. I have also corrected the issue with the HW sheet that some of you could not access. It was my first attempt at using google docs and I forgot to "share" the document. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
