Teaching Methodology
1. Students should prepare for class by reading the textbook and reviewing class lectures, and
quiz questions.
2. Conceptual (or theoretical) lectures will usually be followed by example questions.
3. Some of example questions will be asked to solve during the lecture to help understanding.
4. You have to bring your textbook to the class. Otherwise, you will just sit in the class and waste
your valuable time.
5. Online homework assignments.
6. Do not expect that lectures will cover all the materials. There are time constraint and also
your background differences. For some students, the lectures are too easy. For some students,
lectures are just enough. Hence, you have to read textbook and try to solve problems for each
chapter as much as possible.
