Early Warning System
Within the first three weeks of the semester, you will receive an email asking you to identify any students in your sections that are inadequately prepared and appear to be in the wrong course. It is extremely important that this information be submitted as early as possible so that an advisor can intervene and get the student placed in the appropriate math course before it is too late. Using a diagnostic quiz during the first class meeting and giving regular quizzes early in the semester are two tools you can use to identify these students. You don't have to approach the student yourself about the Early Warning System, but you can if you feel comfortable doing so.
The "What Are You Expected to Know in Your Math Class?" workshops are put on by the Math Tutorial staff and take place during the first week of the semester in order to give students an idea of where they stand in relation to the course they are taking. The workshops are course-specifc and they are open to anyone. The schedule of workshops may be found here.
Many students find studying exams given in previous semesters to be very useful. Most professors make their old exams available online through the math library. Old exams may be found here.
