Pieces of advice:
(1) Work hard from the very beginning. Do
not let the material accumulate without working through it. As
we go along, it is your obligation to read the whole material
of the assigned sections. Do not expect all the details to be covered in class.
(2) Do not hesitate to ask me questions (during the class,
after class, during review sessions). Come to the office hours. If you
have a schedule conflict, set up an appointment with me. (I am a very
flexible guy in this respect!)
(3) Read the university's honor principle. You
are allowed and I encourage you to discuss among yourselves the ideas
of the course, but the homework and the quizzes and the exams
should reflect your own understanding of the subject.
