Office Hours and Other Resources
How successful you will be in Math 11 will depend primarily on how much effort you choose to put forth on your own. Remember that for a 5-unit class, you should expect to devote a total of 15 hours per week to the course, including lectures and discussion sections. There are also a number of resources available to help you succeed in the course. You are encouraged to take advantage of these resources, especially if you are having difficulties in the course.
- Instructor and TA office hours: The instructor and TAs hold regular office hours. Students who have questions about the course material are encouraged to attend these office hours.
Office hours are also the best times to ask questions about homework problems, although you should not expect the instructor or TA to provide you with answers or solutions to homework problems.
You may attend the office hours of any of the TAs, not just the TA who runs your discussion section. The office hour schedule is as follows:
Jason Schweinsberg (email@example.com): Tuesdays 2:30-3:30 PM, Thursdays 9:00-9:50 AM, and Thursdays 3:00-4:30 PM (in 6157 Applied Physics and Mathematics)
Shiyun Chen (firstname.lastname@example.org): Tuesdays 10:00 AM-12:00 PM and Thursdays 12:00-2:00 PM (in 6432 Applied Physics and Mathematics)
Kening Zhang (email@example.com): Thursdays 12:00-1:00 PM (in 5218 Applied Physics and Mathematics)
Shuheng Wang (firstname.lastname@example.org): Thursdays 1:00-2:00 PM (in 5218 Applied Physics and Mathematics)
- Head Lab TA's office hours: The head lab TA holds regular office hours in the computer lab to help students who have questions about the computer lab assignments. The office hour schedule is as follows:
Selene Xu (email@example.com): Wednesdays 11:00 AM - 12:50 PM (in B349 Applied Physics and Mathematics). [Note: these office hours will not be held on October 25 or November 22 because no lab is due those weeks.]
- Supplemental Instruction Sessions: The supplemental instruction program is run by the Teaching and Learning Commons. Regular supplemental instruction sessions for Math 11 students will be run by an undergraduate student, Xinyi Bian. These sessions are intended to help students achieve a better understanding of the course concepts. Supplemental instruction sessions will be held on Mondays from 4:00-5:00 PM, Wednesdays from 3:00-4:00 PM, and Fridays from 3:00-4:00 PM and will be held in the Teaching and Learning Commons, Room 1505 (on the lower level of the Geisel Library).
- OASIS Workshops: The OASIS Math and Science Tutorial Program provides weekly workshops for Math 11 students. These workshops are run by an undergraduate student, Bryan Chavez, and are intended to help students achieve a better understanding of the course concepts. Note that you must apply in advance to be admitted to these workshops. Click here for more information about the program, including information about how to apply for the workshops, and click here to see the workshop schedules. (The schedule for Math 11 can be found by following the "Math 3/4/10" link.)
The textbook for the course is Stats: Data and Models, 4th Edition, by Richard D. De Veaux, Paul F. Velleman, and David E. Bock. Because the homework problems come from the textbook,
it is very important that you have the 4th edition. Although the bookstore sells the textbook together with MyStatLab access, you will not need access to MyStatLab for this course.
You have the option of purchasing an electronic version of the textbook for $69 instead of purchasing a physical textbook.
If you choose this option, you will have access to the e-book only until the end of the quarter
(which means you would need to purchase it again if you drop or fail the course and have to re-take it), though you have the option of getting a free trial for 14 days before you must commit to paying the $69.
To purchase the e-book, log into TritonEd, go to "Content" and click on "MyStatLab Pearson eText". Then follow the instructions.
Once you have paid for access, you should be able to view the e-book by going to "Content" and clicking on "MyStatLab Pearson eText".
The international edition of the textbook has different numbers in a few of the problems and is not suitable for this course.
