Most of the problems I go over will be from the textbook and will be listed under the tentative class schedule at the end of the syllabus. I will also have some class handouts posted on my website that may be covered in class. Regardless of whether you attend class in person or view it through video streaming, students should prepare prior to the class. Preparation for the class should include reading the textbook chapter, reviewing lecture notes and power point slides, and working on the listed textbook problems. If you do attend class in person, you are encouraged to ask questions and seek clarification of issues when necessary.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
