registration
Registration
  • Please register on www.gezabottlik.com as soon as possible. If you have been in one of my classes then you do not need to register again.
  • This allows us to have private information for this class and helps me develop a more comprehensive website to supplement the Blackboard website
  • You will also use this site to take the questionnaires, the background quiz, and to retrieve your grades
questionnaires
Questionnaires
  • The questionnaires are used by the instructor to get demographic data about all his classes and to assess trends in technology and teaching effectiveness
  • The data are confidential and are summarized to help in preparing relevant and interesting classes
  • Next week you will get to see your class incorporated into the data from previous classes
resume
Resume
  • Please provide a one page resume that:
    • Contains a digital picture (properly sized) of yourself
    • Does not have your address, phone number or e-mail address in it
    • Tells me and your class mates about yourself
    • Is modeled on a brief resume used to get employment
grades
Grades
  • Grades vary from class to class. The overall percentages for my undergraduate classes are shown in the pie chart below:
  • Plusses and minuses are incorporated into the associated grades.

How to get a passing or better grade (continued)
  • Do homework at leisure and early in the week. Revisit it at least once.
  • If you have trouble with the homework (in this order):
    • Ask a classmate (be sure you get to know at least two or three people in class)
    • See and/or e-mail the TA
    • E-mail the instructor (Do not ask about material that is already in the syllabus)
  • Compare your returned homework to the provided examples and rethink your responses if they were very different
  • Reread the material after the class for understanding
