Important note: In June 2013, I am leaving the University of Georgia to work in industry. I will still have faculty privileges but will not be available to teach or direct student work. For more information see our newsletter.

Policy on laptops and cell phones in the classroom
    If you use your laptop while I'm lecturing, I'll assume you are using it to take notes or to try the computations that we are discussing.
    Please do not use it for web surfing, e-mail, entertainment, or other irrelevant purposes. This is discourteous and can cause considerable embarrassment to you as well as to me. If the computer obviously captures your attention, I'm likely to step over to your desk to see what you're having trouble with – and if it's not course-related, we'll both be disappointed.
    Do not answer your cell phone in the classroom. During tests or exams, do not even look at your cell phone (which might be displaying text messages); keep it hidden away and turned off.
