If a section is closed, how do I get a "magic number?"
To get a magic number first talk with the instructor, or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
The enrollments in some of our classrooms, for example, Cina 214, are regulated by the Fire Marshal and when those rooms are full, by law, they are full. There is not much we can do at that point. Room capacities regulated by the Fire Marshal generally have a little red sign indicating the offical room capacity. Thanks for your understanding.
Why does it usually take you so long to answer a simple question? It seems like you often get "sidetracked" with your answers.
I'll try to keep this answer short.
The best time to learn is when one has a question. When a question is asked in class the answer will generally include materials that were scheduled for discussion at a later date. For example, you might ask about Anorexia nervosa the first week of class. The answer to that may seem long and "sidetracked" because part of the answer is part of the "Food and Social Change – Food related problems . . ." and related lectures scheduled on and about Week 10 Day 19. Then, when we get to the time originally scheduled for Anorexia nervosa, I skip over the materials covered when the question was originally asked in class. And so it goes that way. . . .
