Thank you for calling this to my attention.  Looks like I need to talk to my
TAs if one of them told you it was due on Monday.  It is due the same day you
will turn in problem set #1, just before class on September 14.  The problem
set will be turned in electronically, but the student information sheet I want
on a sheet of paper with a photo large enough that I can tell it looks like 
you taped, glued, printed, or stapled to the front of it.  There will be boxes 
at the back of the room as you enter the classroom for you to put it in.  

The screw-up between Sept 7 and Sept 14 is my fault.  Originally, I was going
to make the first problem set due on Sept 7, and later decided to give you one
more week.  But I forgot to change the date on the Student Information Sheet.
Thanks, again, for letting me know.

Good luck with the course.
