You can expect me to be fair on all exams and homework as well as the calculation of your final grade. I am not here to be popular. I am here to add value to each and every one of you. I approach this task with sincerity and commitment. I expect sincerity and commitment from my students. Your job is to be prepared for each class and work hard to make sure you understand all material.
