UConn Policy Statement on Final Exam Scheduling: Final exam week for Fall 2017 takes place from Monday, December 11th through Sunday, December 17, 2017. Students are required to be available for their exam during the stated time. If you have a conflict with this time, you must visit the Dean of Students Office to discuss the possibility of rescheduling this exam. Please note that vacations, previously purchased tickets or reservations, social events, misreading the exam schedule and over-sleeping are not viable excuses for missing a final exam. If you think that your situation warrants permission to reschedule, please contact the Dean of Students Office with any questions. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Students with disabilities: Please contact me during office hours (or come by my office at another time) to discuss academic accommodations that may be needed during the semester due to a documented disability. If you have a disability for which you wish to request accommodations and have not contacted the Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD), please do so as soon as possible. The CSD engages in an interactive process with each student and reviews requests for accommodation on an individualized case-by-case basis. The CSD is located in Wibur Cross Room 204 and can be reached at 860-486-2020 or at Detailed information regarding the process to request accommodations is available on the CSD website.

Office Hours

My office hours are Wednesday 1:00-2:30 and Thursday 1:00-2:30. However, I am around the Math Department in Monteith almost every day, so if you cannot make those times, you can stop by my office or send an email to request another time.

For Final Exam week: I will have office hours on Wednesday December 13 from 2:00-3:30, and on Thursday December 14 from 2:00-3:30. During finals week, I will be around quite a bit, especially on Tuesday and Wednesday. So, if you would like to meet at a different time, please send me an email and we can arrange a time.
