    • Ask questions about the homework due that week, or other questions about the course material
    • Exams for Main Campus students will also be given during this time block, but will be two-hour exams from 5-7pm (tentative).   Attendance is required during these times when exams are given, whereas recitation attendance is optional.  Exams for distance students will be scheduled separately and due a few days after the in-person exams.

    • Wednesdays 2:30-3:30 pm in person only (in Brian’s office, room 622)
    • Zoom office hours for remote students.   Regularly scheduled office hours for remote students are possible, but don’t seem to work very well.  1:1 scheduled Zoom meetings is preferred, and works well, but we can modify based on the needs of the remote students in the class.
