Office Hours

I will hold office hours from 12:30pm to 1:30pm on Wednesday and from 4pm to 5pm on Thursday. I will also answer emailed questions. My office number is E16 and other contact details are on this link. Homework is due during the lecture on the Friday after it is assigned. Remember to staple (do not paper-clip or fold) your homework together in the top left-hand corner. Staple everything you are handing in for each week all together and in the order in which it was assigned. Label each answer clearly with the question number and on the front sheet write your name and your tutor's name.
