I am looking forward to working with you in this course over this term.
Success in this class can be attained by following some simple steps: Do all of
the lab assignments and turn them in on time. View all of the videos
during the term. Take all of the examinations. You are expected to spend about
10-15 hours per week for this course.
Be an active learner- which means watch the lecture attend, attend weekly
review sessions and try to understand all the concepts. Call me if you need help
or if you feel you are lost on getting started with the subject matter.
