PresentationsThis course will feature student
presentations. It is well known that the best way to learn
something is to explain it to others. When we present something to
others, we have to think about it in many different ways and look
at it from different angles. Giving presentations is very
difficult, which is why, when you give presentations, I will not
judge your performance, but will help you learn
the material in the best way possible and also help you learn
how to give presentations. This is a skill that will be very useful in
many different contexts, regardless of what your career goals
are. Any comments will not affect your grade, but will help you learn.
Please prepare your presentations carefully. In particular, please
write detailed notes for your presentations. It is usually a good
idea to have a rehearsal with some of your friends/classmates
before your presentation.
Some class notes:
Homework 1: due Wednesday January 17
Chapter 3 of Do Carmo, #1, 2, 3, 4
Homework 2: due Wednesday April 18
Chapter 4 #1,2, Chapter 5 #1,2, Chapter 6 #1,2, Chapter 7 #1,2, Chapter 8 #1,2
Note that some adjustment to the above might be necessary during the quarter.
