Advice from a College Math Instructor (part 1)

This new idea for a post came from an encounter with a student today. I thought I would advise (rant) about general college behaviors along with math study tips.

Today's Topic: Special Favors
  • Don't ask for extra credit or special favors in front of the rest of the class.
  • If you ask for extra credit, extensions, answers to a test, or other special favors that make your life easier, then, when you receive a polite no, don't laugh and pretend you were just kidding.
  • Don't ask for special favors multiple times per meeting and pretend you are kidding.
  • Don't criticize the class or instructor for a mistake you made in regards to special favors, especially in front of other students.
  • If you are always asking for special favors, then complain when it appears someone else got one (when they didn't), then you probably won't receive one in the future.
