February, 22nd

Well, we've finally managed to leave the February exams behind and classes can go back to normal.

The groups will be, I'm afraid, out of synch for a few days... or maybe permanently. Please, be patient and remember that I'll be posting exercises when I've done the activities with the three classes.
