Course websites: Discussion Board, Announcements: sakai.rutgers.edu Exam Scores Rutgers Gradebook ( https://secure.fas.rutgers.edu/apps/gradebook/ ) Contacting Me You do not have to make an appointment to see me during my office hours. To make an appointment to meet outside of my office hours e-mail me. I will have extra office hours before exams. Check the Aplia or Sakai webpages for details. Before emailing me a question you should check the discussion board on our class’ Sakai website to see if your question has already been asked (and perhaps answered) by one of your fellow classmates. If it has not, please post your question to the class discussion board. I (and/or my TAs) will check the discussion board almost every day. You can learn a lot from the information on the discussion board. You can also feel free to e-mail me with any question related to the class. I check my e-mail frequently. Let me emphasize, however, that questions of a general nature will likely be answered via a posting to the discussion board rather than a direct response.
