/ rules / policies about these math-help sessions:
1) These times are for walk-ins. No
may come for any amount of time:
a short time, even just one question, or for longer, as long
as they want during the scheduled times.
may show up anytime during a
scheduled help session.
They do not have to come right at the beginning, and they
may leave whenever they're finished, without waiting for the
end of the session.
math-help sessions are to help
students with things they are having difficulty
understanding, or a problem they cannot figure out,
after first working hard at home on it, and trying the
normal things to figure out how and why to do it (textbook
examples, solution manual, other adults or students, whatever
might help). However, don't agonize about
trying at home for hours...if still stuck on something after
doing the main things and using the main resources, come in
and see me. I can usually save someone a lot
of time with just a few minutes of explanation for a specific
type of problem.
math-help sessions are NOT for me to teach a section to a
student from scratch. They should have already worked
hard at home trying to learn it, using the textbook examples,
solution manual, adults, even videos online. If they
haven't tried hard at home first, they shouldn't come in for
math help yet, until they have done their part appropriately
at home first.
