This class has a fabulous teaching assistant named Jenn Burt. Jenn is a full time employee of the NCSU Math department and provides lots of important technical support for all the NCSU math faculty. But she has a special role with this class in that she provides support for student questions about homework assignments.
Jenn has been helping with this class for more than 15 years, so she has vast experience and knows how to respond effectively to pretty much every conceivable student question. You'll no doubt find her a valuable resource. But Jenn is very busy with startup issues for the math department during the first few days of class each semester, so I suggest you wait at least until next week to make contact with Jenn.
