Educational Philosophy: I provide each student the maximum number of resources to learn the material. This enables the student to use a combination of the various mediums to match his/her personal learning style. These resources include me as the instructor, the text, lectures, my personal notes, various internet links, as well as homework assignments and tests to help guide and evaluate the student’s efforts. Homework will be assigned and due each week to give the student an opportunity to practice applying the material. To facilitate the student’s understanding of the material, I will provide an opportunity to ask questions and review material during each class. Students are encouraged to bring homework questions to these sessions. I will also make myself as available as possible via email and by appointment. A midterm and final exam will be administered to test the student’s ability to apply the material.
