Suggestions for Successful Study : • Dont get behind in your reading, homework, etc. • Participate in class, ask questions, and make use of my office hours. • Form a study group with others in the class. Work together on homework - but everyone must join in and submit their own work. • Read ahead in the book and watch the videos. A little bit of preparation will help the material sink in quicker during class and allow you to ask meaningful questions. • Keep all your old exams and case studies. You’ll find them useful when youre studying for tests. • If you think youll need extra help, establish a tutoring plan right away. Check with the Teaching and Learning Center (Room 68 in the Basement of PLC) for free or private tutoring. Tutoring is also available in the Math Reading Room in Fenton every day except Saturdays, and for business majors in the Braddock Tutoring Center in Lillis Monday through Thursday. 4
Math 242: Calculus for Business and Economics II Spring 2016, CRN 33564 Some Comments About Large Courses : There are a number of difficulties associated with large courses, and as such I require everyone’s coop- eration to make our classroom experience positive and worthwhile. Here are some guidelines I ask you to follow during the term: • If you are going to be late to class, make your entry as quietly as possible. • Please, PLEASE, make sure your cell phone is turned off or silent before every class. • We have limited time together during the term, so be ready to begin class promptly at 10am and don’t start packing up until I’ve dismissed class. • Sit as close to the front of the room as space will allow. The closer you are the easier it is for me to interact with you and for you to see the projected material. • Don’t engage in side conversations during class. A pair of students can disrupt everyone nearby. If you have a question, you’ll find me very willing to oblige. Otherwise, take it outside. • Understand how difficult it is for me to organize hundreds of students during the term when everyone wants to submit late work. Bonus homework points are added to account for life’s little misfortunes. True emergencies are grounds for exceptions to the late work policy, but not because you slept in, had a project due in another class recently, or another unfortunate, but avoidable, happenstance.
