So, practice not to be dependent on them for speed and accuracy on examsand quizzes.• Arrive to class on time. If you have a long walk between classes, let me know at thebeginning of the semester.• While in class:- Do not talk during a lecture, or while other people are talking. Show respect foryour classmates.- Do not use cellphones.- Do not read newspapers.- Do not get up and leave during a lecture, unless in an emergency.Math is definitely not funny, but can be a lot of fun with patience and practice.Penn State University, University Park Page
