in class. If you don’t understand, ASK ME! I also expect you to speak English when you come to talk to me in my office. It’s OK to write some notes first! Check every week before you come to class. New handouts will be posted Sunday night by 10:00 p.m.



Respect me and other students, and I will respect you. Disrespect me, and you will have
problems. (it’s the best way to learn!) When you talk to me, ask me questions, write me a note, or anything else. But please try to make fewer mistakes on tests!
