The material presented during lecture will be the basis for the exams. In addition, a part of your grade will be determined by your daily participation in class (see below). Outlines of lecture powerpoint presentations with figures will be available on Blackboard (courses.utexas.edu) prior to class. It is suggested that you bring these to class as a guide for note taking. Just looking at these outlines or the textbook will not be an adequate substitute for attending class. If you must miss a lecture, review the slides, do the recommended reading and check with at least one other classmate who attended the lecture for any additional notes. After you have done this, you may also make arrangements with your lecturer or T.A. to review the material you missed. Discussion Sections (1 hour/week) Each student is enrolled in a one hour per week discussion section (see below). These discussions, which are led by your TA, are run for your benefit. The purpose of these sessions is to review and reinforce the material covered in lecture, as well as to provide you the opportunity to discuss topics in smaller groups. It is highly recommended that you attend all discussion sessions. In addition, participation during these meetings will be factored into your overall course grade (see below). Please attend the discussion section to which you are assigned. Discussions will begin meeting the week of January 23. 48475 Wednesday 10:00 – 11:00 JES A216A 48480 Wednesday 11:00 – 12:00 JES A215A 48485 Tuesday 1:00 – 2:00 CBA 4.344 48490 Tuesday 2:00-3:00 CBA 4.326 Course Learning Outcomes Information on learning outcomes will be provided in the course website on Blackboard (courses.utexas.edu).
