A Message from your Instructor

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.
