The Math Lab is open: MTWR 8:00 AM - 8:00 PM F 8:00 AM - 2:00 PM S 10:00 AM-2:00 PM. You do not need an appointment to get assistance from the tutors on the Floor, but the tutors on the Floor must help all the students and may have to take turns; they cannot work with one student for a prolonged period of time.Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus One-to-one tutoring sessions (1 hour in length) are available for MAT0020 courses. Appointments are offered at different times and are scheduled one week in advance. Please visit the Math Lab and speak to any of the Supervisors to schedule an appointment. If you have a problem with the Math Lab, please contact any of the supervisors: Arcides Acosta, Maliya Beylin, Jose De Paz, or Verdieu Lucas at 305-237-3834 or visit their offices in room 2223. If after speaking with a supervisor the problem persists, then you need to visit the chairperson, Miguel Montañez (office 1540) as the next step. Classroom and Laboratory Etiquette The instructor would like to welcome all students into an environment that creates a sense of community, pride, courtesy and respect; we are all here to work cooperatively and to learn together. In order to create a smooth and harmonious learning environment, please make every attempt to come to all the class sessions, to come to class on time, and to stay until the end of the class session unless you have informed your instructor that you must leave early. There may be a time when you are unavoidably late for class, in that case, please come into the room quietly (through the back door if there is one) and choose a seat closest to the entrance. Once the class session has begun, please do not leave the room and then re-enter unless it is an emergency. If you miss a class meeting for any reason, you are responsible for all material discussed, for announcements made in your absence, and for acquiring any materials that may have been distributed in class. You are responsible for contacting the instructor for this information. It is important that we are all able to stay focused on the class discussion. For this reason, only one person in the class at a time should be speaking. Side conversations are distracting for surrounding students and for the instructor. Professional behavior is expected at all times. You are encouraged to ask questions. Please refrain from bringing food or drinks into any classroom or the Math lab. Beepers and Cellular telephones must be turned off. The vibrate mode is not considered turned off. Absolutely no text messaging or instant messaging is allowed in the classroom. The instructor may ask you to leave the classroom for the day if you are caught. Problems with Instructor If you are having a problem with your mathematics instructor, please see that instructor during office hours. Before or after class is generally not a good time to discuss a problem with an instructor who is either about to start class or on the way to the next class. If after speaking with your instructor during office hours you cannot resolve the problem, then you need to visit the chairperson, Miguel Montañez (office 1540) as the next step. Professional Student Behavior The MDC Students’ Rights and Responsibilities Handbook describes students’ appropriate and inappropriate behaviors, along with their consequences. Additionally, please be aware that cheating, plagiarism, and disruptive behavior are not tolerated and can result in serious consequences such as failure of a course or dismissal from the college. For more information, go to http://www.mdc.edu/policy/student_rights_and_responsibilities.pdf Office Hours Your professor urges you to avail yourself of his/her individual instruction during office hours. Do not wait until you are in trouble. If you have been absent or late to class, please read the lesson you missed and come to his/her office prepared with questions. Attendance The number one key to educational success is to attend classes. Students are responsible for any work missed when absent. Class attendance will be recorded daily. Frequent absences may cause you to be dropped from the course. You should make an effort to always be in class, and on time. Lateness is rude and disruptive.Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus Registration It is your responsibility to make sure that you are registered for this course.
