We spent a little bit of time looking back at first semester and talking about changes for second semester (both changes in the class and changes that each of you might make).
We also spent a little time talking about our Kiva loan. I won't have time to make the loan until this weekend or early next week so, if you're interested, feel free to browse the Kiva site and send any recommended entrepreneurs that you would like to fund to me.
We then talked about the millionaire problem as our intro to exponents (lesson, pdf).

D. Place the document in the folder you share with me (Algebra-Fisch-YourName).
