Here's my Class Schedule

The three secrets to success
  • Stay on top: Work one week ahead of schedule, if possible.
  • Choose your battles wisely: Grades are given based on total points. If you are getting stuck on a question or an assignment that isn't as many points as something else, move on, and come back later when you have time, energy, or the answer!
  • STAY IN TOUCH: Emails and phone calls are a necessary and expected part of education. Office hour visits are even better. Let me know that you are trying, and I will do my best to help. If I never hear from you, there is nothing I can do! Also try your best to establish communication and study groups with your classmates. Working alone may be convenient, but it is not always enjoyable and productive.
