March 18 Day 10: Swallowed by Black Hole

Day 10 of Math in the Time of Corona.  I was just swallowed by that black hole.  The uncertainty has been removed (2 days before the deadline) and Spring quarter will be entirely online.

I quote from  President Cauce’s email: “Shortly, we will notify all students that spring quarter will begin with remote instruction on March 30, with fully remote instruction continuing through the end of spring quarter. There will be no in-person classes this spring.

We want everyone to get familiar with and engaged in a remote learning environment and we will use the first week of the quarter for that purpose.”

Does that mean we will be working on prepping for online classes in the first week OR will we continue to fly by the seat of our pants teaching online in addition to becoming familiar with the remote learning environment? Asking for a friend.
