Office Hours Survey (Closed)

Have a course-material-related question?

Piazza should be the preferred method of course-material-related questions, in lieu of emails. Everyone – the instructors and students – can answer the question or add their own follow-up question. The instructors can give a ‘thumbs up’ to good student answers. Others with the same question can see the conversation and chime in. At the end of the term, students whose questions or answers receive the largest number of “good” votes from classmates and instructors will receive extra credit.

Email me if you have any problems using Piazza.
