Weekly workshop: TBA

You are expected to read your text book before each class. You should generally keep pace with the lecture material. Bring your math problems in your beer party!!

If you get stuck on homework problems, you don't understand some concept as well as you'd like, or you feel lost and confused, then please ask for help. Office hours are a good thing; you should take advantage of them in all your classes.
