Current Notes:  (1655/25 Nov 15)

NOW is the time to start getting ready for the final exam.  If you put it off until study week, chances of success go down substantially. 

Points for your "Three Most Important Things" essays are posted.  Your papers were generally very good.

Offline Homework Five is posted, due 30 Nov(section 1034) or 01 Dec(section 1032).

Portfolio instructions are posted, due 02 Dec (section 1034) or 03 Dec (section 1032).

Expect me to award the last of the online homework points on 04 Dec.  All homework is open to work on; complete and correct gets the points. Half the online homework points remain to be awarded; now would be a good time to catch up if you are behind.

Did I mention I have an office hour almost every day, and LOVE it when students stop by to talk about math?

Good deal for MATH 124 students:  The Math Tutor clinic is available Mon-Friday 0800-1700.  More info here.  Our tutors friendly, helpful and committed to helping you understand your math.  The enterprise is supported by student fees; there is no is no additional cost.  I highly encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity; numerous students have told me it was a key to their success.

I've found a few people that not only know about how to succeed in a math class, but were willing to write it down.  In some cases, they talk about "calculus," but if you substitute "math" it still works.  Check them out here.

Do math every day.
