Hi Mr. Orr! A bunch of us are wondering when you’re coming back. We’re having a difficult time understanding and using Fathom. We really need you. Hope things are well with the babies!

Hey Mr. Orr! Since I have a mac, can I use the same Fathom CD you want us to use?
Hi Mr.Orr, I managed to save my international data from school. When I attempted to open these files at home it would not let me, and said that the data I had requested to import again no longer existed. I’ve been trying for the last few hours to get thoose graphs I originally used to work but they wouldn’t, and I also tried to get new graphs but it didn’t work either. Do you know any way to make it work??
Hi Meghan, you have until class time to complete the assignment, so you could come early or spend lunch working on it in the library or room 170. You can come see me if you wish
