Students may come to Polsky 131F anytime, not just during office hours. If Dr. Randby is in the office when a student arrives and he is not working on something urgent, then he will be happy to help the student.

Please note that office hours are for discussing homework problems, clarifying concepts discussed in class, and discussing general mathematical issues.

Whenever a student goes to the instructor's office for help, the student should bring relevant class notes, a copy of any relevant homework assignments, any work the student has done, a calculator, a writing instrument, and paper.
