Advice for students:
The main thing to do to succeed is to listen to the professor, do as she says, therefore when she says do the homework, it would be beneficial to do the homework. If you have time, try and do the practice problems she does in class on your own and see if you can do them. The professor will not give anything on the exam that she has not covered, therefore to succeed make sure you have the method down and you should do fine. Also, when taking the exams do all that you can and do the best you can because partial credit is applied to the exam which will save you as the teacher focuses more on method and that you have an understanding of how to do the problem than obtaining the actual answer.
