Trying to learn mathematics on your own is unnecessarily complicated. I believe that speaking with other people is one of the most helpful things in a math course. So, in this course you will have group members that you do work with throughout the semester:
- You will meet weekly to discuss what you learned that week (or previous week) during class (this is not mandatory, obviously I am not taking attendance). You can decide on what time/what day you would like to do this. I can tell from experience that the groups which meet regularly do much better in the course.
- You will write Weekly Blog questions together. See Blog FAQ under Weekly Blogs.
- You will read a paper and make a Project together. See Project under Ozgur’s Corner.
- You will take an oral exam (Graded Group Chat) together during the last week of classes.
I will create a Group Chat for you on Microsoft Teams for you to communicate. Since you are all UCONN students, you all have access to this platform. We do not need Discord or Snapchat or Whatsapp or WeChat groups.
A clarification: You will meet me on the given time for the graded group chat. Half an hour before the exam, you are allowed to meet with your group members and I will give you the questions to discuss with your group members. This means that if your group is taking the exam on Monday 12:30, you can show up at 12:00 to discuss questions (or feel free to join exactly at 12:30). I believe I said this earlier in class when brought up, but in case I did not you can let me know if you would like to switch the groups after this information.
