Question from a Student:
Dear Professor, How does a student do well in your class?
ANSWER: Hi __________,
Thank you so much for your email. To do well in the class you need to do what you do for almost all of your classes: attend lectures (either live or the video), read the textbook and other readings, and study when exams come along. Also, do well on the written assignments – show that you thought about them.
Concerning help, you can always email the TA or me with a question. If the question is very interesting – I will post it on the blog for the course, so that all students will benefit from your question.
I hope you have a very productive and healthy semester!
