A note regarding
the day that the homework is due I will answer questions on homework
which students submit to me (via e-mail) for the first 10 to 20 minutes
of class. Students must submit questions to me on the homework
via e-mail 24 hours
before class but
generally I will check my e-mail the night before class starts sometime
after 6 P.M. I most likely will not be able to answer everyone's
questions (probably just a few people's questions) since I only have
10-20 minutes, but I am more than willing to discuss your questions
with you via e-mail, and before or after class. I strongly
encourage students to ask questions and get help if they are confused
on course material or homework.
