This course will feature student presentations. It is well known that the best way to learn something is to explain it to others. When we present something to others, we have to think about it in many different ways and look at it from different angles. Giving presentations is very difficult, which is why, when you give presentations, I will not judge your performance, but will help you learn the material in the best way possible and also help you learn how to give presentations. This is a skill that will be very useful in many different contexts, regardless of what your career goals are. Any comments will not affect your grade, but will help you learn.
Please prepare your presentations carefully. In particular, please write detailed notes for your presentations. It is usually a good idea to have a rehearsal with some of your friends/classmates before your presentation.
