9:45-11:15

TuTh

8:45-9:15, 10:45-11, 3:30-4:30

MW

Additionally, when I am not in class or out to lunch, I am almost always in my office until late afternoon. The exceptions to this rule are on days when I participate in the Auburn Geometry Seminar and during dark winter months when I sometimes leave a little earlier so that I can ride my bike in the daylight. My students are invited and encouraged to get help early before their understanding of the material falls behind. Call my office number to see if I am in or to make an appointment. There is voice mail at my office number: 782-5819.
