Back to work- truth tables

October 9, 2011 No Comments

OK, OK, it was a little more than 2 weeks.  I have managed to post the truth-tables I developed at the end of august, but everything else has come to a bit of a screeching halt as the semester has kicked into high gear.  Here’s a list of current truth tables, and what is coming soon (unlinked forms are not yet posted).

I counted through my files, and I’ve got about 50 more video ads to post, and an indefinite number of text examples to process.  I’ll try to get one or two up a week during the semester, but with any luck, I can recruit a work-study next spring to post my stuff regularly.
