Unformatted text preview: www.sfu.ca/loncapa Discussions are permitted for the LON-CAPA assignments. The intent is for you to be able to discuss the concepts needed to answer the questions with your classmates. Please do not misuse this privilege by posting a formula that can be used for your classmates to 'plug in' their numbers.

The 1st LON-CAPA assignment, which is open now, will be due on Jan 19th. There is one written assignment, see attached file, that is due at 9:25 am Friday Jan 20th. Note that prior to each of the 2 midterms the LON-CAPA assignment will be due WEDNESDAY night, 11:59 pm, instead of Thurs....

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
