Teaching approach

Each lecture starts with a series of brief and polished summary power point slides from previous material taught in class and proceeds then with a black board lecture or in class demonstration. The evaluation is based on many different methods including: regular exams (3 per semesters), weekly quizzes, regular homework, a final written (and oral on a volunteer basis) project, and the Just in Time Teaching (JiTT) method which make use of a short "warm-up" handed out the day before each class with a few short questions that the students have to answer before class, and a sort "puzzle" assigned a day or two before each class and to be turned in by the students at the beginning of each lecture.
