"Did I miss anything?" This is quite possibly the most annoying question students ask me. A student has been absent for three days. Upon returning, s/he will invariably ask not "What did I miss?" which would indicate a willingness to make up the missing assignments, but rather "Did I miss anything?" My usual sarcastic reply is something like this: "Oh, heck no! We knew you were gone, so we just sat around all day and looked at each other. You don't really think I'm going to assign work on a day you're not here, do you?" So, in order to keep everyone (students and their parents) apprised of what exactly is going on each day in class, I am going to start putting it here.
