Student Responsibilities

Each student in this course is expected to be actively engaged in learning. You are expected to:

  • attend all classes, except in case of emergencies or special circumstances. If you know in advance that you will miss a class, notify me in advance. If you feel that you are not getting enough out of class to make it worth your while to attend, then discuss this with me.
  • let me know if the course is going too fast or too slow.
  • read the assigned portions of the notes.
  • do assigned homework following the homework requirements, and let me know if you find the homework too easy or too difficult.
  • participate in class, including: asking questions, answering questions, correcting my errors, joining in discussions and making presentations at the blackboard.
  • come to office hours. This is an opportunity to review difficult material with me, discuss specific homework problems, or to delve more deeply into material that we don't have time to cover. When coming to discuss specific difficulties you are having with the course material or homework, prepare in advance so that you can be as clear and specific as possible in identifying the difficulty you are having.
