Most of your lab meetings will be devoted to working together on homework/project problems, in a student-centered format. After the first week of classes homework will be assigned on Wednesdays and due the subsequent Wednesday. (There will not be an assignment due on the first Wednesday of classes.) Lab work that is not part of homework due on Wednesday will be handed in at your next week's lab meeting on Thursday.

Office Hours :
   Professor Korevaar: Tuesdays and Wednesdays 4:30-6:00 PM in the conference room LCB 218 and by appointment. I will also be available Mondays after class, in the WEB common area outside our classroom. (My Math 2280 class students may also attend these. I expect more Math 2250 students on Tuesdays, and more Math 2280 students on Wednesdays, because of when homework is due for each class.)
   Patrick Webb: Tuesdays 12-2 WEB 1622
   Kevin Childers: Mondays 1-3 JWB 120

If you need to see me outside of office hours, we can set up an appointment. You're free to drop by my office whenever you want, and if I'm available I'll at least be able to give you brief help. My phone number is 801-581-7318 and my email address is korevaar "at" math.utah.edu.

We also have a CANVAS page, where course material related to exams and quizzes will be posted: 2250-004 CANVAS page 

Course details: This 2250-004 syllabus  contains detailed course information, including course learning objectives, outline, grading policy, expected schedule etc. Note that you will be required to get a grade of at least "C" on the final exam in order to get a grade of at least "C" for the course.

Class lecture notes   will be in this directory.
Homework assignments   will be in this directory. This will include copies of your lab questions.

Homework, lab, quiz and exam grades will be recorded on-line, using "CANVAS"

understanding mathematics  is the top google hit for that query. If you're having trouble in this class it could be that you need to rethink how you try to learn mathematics, and that link might help. Please contact me as well, and we'll see if there are some different or additional strategies you might employ.

The Kahn Academy and patrickJMT are good on-line resources for many of the topics in our course. Coming to and participating in the scheduled lectures and labs is also extremely important for most people who wish to learn the course material.

2250fall16  is the directory from my most recent previous Math 2250. The pacing and content this spring should be similar.
