The seminar meets on Mondays from 4-6, in
the Linguistics building at 10 Washington Place, in room 104 (back of the first floor).
-We've sent around an email to those who left their email addresses on the roster we passed around. But it's clear that the roster didn't make its way to everyone. So if you didn't receive our email this evening, please email with your email address, and if you're a student, say whether you expect to audit or take the class for credit.
+One student session will be held every Wednesday from 3-4. The other will be arranged to fit the schedule of those who'd like to attend but can't make the Wednesday time. (We first proposed Tuesdays from 11-12, but this time turns out not to be so helpful.) If you're one of the students who wants to meet for Q&A at some other time in the week, let us know.
-Student sessions will be held on Tuesdays from 11-12 and Wednesdays from 3-4. (You only need attend one session.) You should see these sessions as opportunities to clear up lingering issues from material we've discussed, and help get a better footing for what we'll be doing the next week. It would be smart to make a serious start on that week's homework, for instance, before the session.

+There is now a [[lambda evaluator]] you can use in your browser (no need to install any software).
+It can help you check whether your answer to some of the homework questions works correctly.
+
+There is now a [library](/lambda_library) of lambda-calculus arithmetical and list operations, some relatively advanced.
+
+There's also a page of [[miscellaneous lambda challenges and advanced topics]].
