Pick Your Problem

  1. Fielded a phone call today from a student who wanted to move from Real Calculus 2 to a low-level, almost remedial algebra course. Dude, add-drop ended two weeks ago.

  2. Having a meeting tomorrow with a self-described graduating senior who has dropped Math For Graduating. I suspect that he will be disappointed with the outcome of the meeting.

  3. An international student in my class is facing a medical situation that will take 5+ weeks to recover from.

  4. A student who missed the exam on Wednesday sent me a cryptic email today (not mentioning the exam) but asking to meet to explain hir situation. Stu claims this meeting will only take a minute or two. Stu gives no hint of what this situation is.
