During the Fall 2017 semester I am teaching

I have scheduled office hours on Tuesday and Friday, from 1:00 PM to 1:30 PM and 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM and on other days and at other times by appointment.  You can drop by during those hours but it is certainly better to make an appointment (not necessarily for those hours).
