Instructions / Suggestions for satisfactory progress in this course:

• On average, most students find at least three hours outside of class for each class hour necessary for satisfactory
learning.
• Chapters should be read and homework should be attempted before class.
• Do not get behind. You are encouraged to work with other students. Plus, I am always available during office
hours to help you.
• The homework assigned is a minimum. You may always work extra hours on your own.
• Use the few minutes you usually have before the start of each class to review the prior meetings’ notes and
homework. This will save us valuable in-class time to work on new material.
• Develop a learning habit rather than memorizing.
• Work in groups, whenever appropriate.
• Apply the learned principles and gained knowledge.
• Be creative in thinking.
