It’s interesting what types of things can make a difference in the day of a college student. I’ve been going to my math professor’s office hours about every other week, just stopping by to ask a few quick questions, get some clarifications, and make sure that the professor knows who I am. Whenever I visit, I make sure to remind him that I’m Maggie, and then I just hope that sticks with him. It’s nice to know that a professor remembers you, because he’ll be more willing to help you out when you’re really in a bind, and on top of that, professors are pretty cool people.
Today in class I had a question about a proof that Dr. Cusick was doing on the chalkboard and when I raised my hand, he addressed me by name, which brightened my morning significantly. That class has been a bit of a challenge because it’s nothing like any math class I’ve taken before… Numbers are a rarity and algebra sense, which has always been a given in math, must be analyzed and torn down to the basics and explained. We had our first exam on Friday and I think it went pretty well (I’ll find out for sure on Wednesday morning).
I’ve been pretty bad about posting frequently—it’s been an incredibly busy few weeks and I have been working on a super-duper exciting “project” that I will be posting more information about later this week (I promise).
Lots of love!
