In order to be successful in this class I strongly recommend the following:

  • Never skip class;
  • While in class take accurate lecture notes;
  • Do your homework, never skip any homework assignment;
  • Ask for help. If you don't understand any issue or can't do any homework problem, make sure to go to my office hours and ask for help. You can also ask me to post solutions to more difficult exercises from the homework.
  • Make sure to memorize all definitions and the statements of theorems. I recommend that you write all definitions and statements of theorems on a separate sheet of paper for quick reference.
