Logistics: Math 2280-001 meets MWF 8:05-9:25 a.m. in LCB 215.

My office hours are tentatively set up as follows: Tuesdays 2:00-3:00 PM, Wednesdays 10:00-11:00 AM, in my office LCB 204.  We'll also have problem sessions Thursdays 8:35-9:25 AM in WBB 617. 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, but I'll chase you away if I'm busy. (Also, I'll be spending a lot of my time in the Associate Chair office JWB 236, so you can look there too.) My phone number is 801-581-7318 and my email address is korevaar "at" math.utah.edu.

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 is also extremely important for most people who wish to learn the course material.

2280spring11  is the directory from the last time I taught Math 2280. The pacing this spring should be similar, although the lecture format of three extended lecture meetings per week rather than four 50-minute sessions is different from then.
