Current Notes:  (1700/29 Nov 16)

Your "Three Most Important Things" essays were very nice.  If you actually learned half of what you said, I've had a very successful term.  Points are posted.

Everyone still here has a chance to pass this class.  You are my students.  I want to believe in you.  Give me a reason to believe.  The final exam is, of course, the biggest deal, but there are some things you can do to get points between now and the final exam.  Position yourself as best you can for the closeout of the course.  Gather the points, make me believe.  The list of events before the final follows:

Offline Homework Five is due 05 (Sections 1001, 1005) or 06 Dec (Sections 1020, 1035).

Portfolios are due 07 (Sections 1001, 1005) or 08 Dec (Sections 1020, 1035).  Instructions are posted.  I have several portfolios from previous semesters in my office if you would like to stop by to take a look.

The remaining online homework points will be awarded on about 09 Dec.  I will evaluate every online homework assignment from beginning to end.  Complete and correct gets the points.

Did I mention I have office hours four days a week, and I LOVE it when students stop by to talk about math?

Good deal for MATH 124 students:  The Math Tutoring Clinic is open daily (Monday-Friday 0900-1700) for your use.  Our tutors are smart, talented, patient, and comitted to helping you master the material in this course.  The enterprise is funded by student fees; there is no additional cost.  Several of my students have credited the work they did there as essential to their success in math class.  More information is here.

I've found a few people that not only know how to succeed in a math class, they were bold enough to write it down for you.  Sometimes, they talk about "calculus," but if you insert "math" it will work just as well.  Links are here.

Do math every day.
