Quarter Taken: Spring 2019 Submitted Aug. 6, 2019 Grade Received: B+

Overall, the course was pretty good. You get graded on attendance (20%) homework (40%), and a final (30%).

You get your attendance points by taking a quiz at the beginning of class everyday. The quiz is just one question so its a hit or miss on your point. The question isn't usually hard but if you don't do the readings, you kinda just have to try your best and guess. Being on time to class is VERY important as she begins as soon as she arrives or as soon as the class is scheduled to begin.

You can work on your homework with peers - it is highly recommended because you will get stuck on a few trick questions. Office hours with your TA can help if your having particular trouble with the assignment. She doesn't have any rules on using your phone/computer but stay focused because her notes don't go too in depth to answer all of the problems you'll see on your HW assignments.

The final is cumulative so make sure you understand the concepts well. You could opt for a paper but the paper requires lots of guidance from the professor (you have to schedule a meeting with her).

Overall, the content for the course is very interesting! I loved the material very much. She does take a more philosophical approach to the content so do not be discouraged with all of the logic material. She can be a bit monotone but she is a great professor who is very knowledgable and tries her best to incorporate semantics into our everyday lives and current events: JUST SIT IN THE FRONT OF THE ROOM SO YOU STAY FOCUSED AND DON'T FALL ASLEEP. Also, do not be afraid to ask her clarify something because she can sometimes breeze over material and that material will 9/10 come out on your final and hw assignments.
