Two lectures today; one of them finished

Today is Tuesday, when I have two lectures to teach. The first one is for graduate students starting at 9 AM. This class is shared by three professors including me. I finished my last 7th tern, so I will not teach this class from next week. In the afternoon, I am instructing undergraduate students in practical electronics. This class is not exciting, but students are steadily learning. Anyway, Tuesdays will be easier.

So he will work with me during his stay. I hope he will enjoy this opportunity more than 30%.

Classes on Tuesday

There are about 50 students taking my first lecture on Tuesday. The lecture room was too small and it was changed to a new one. Unfortunately, the lamp of the projector was dead, and everybody had to move back to the old lecture room. The first class started after 9 AM and ended at 10:30 AM. Then, there was a scientific meeting from 10:40 AM to 12:30 PM. The afternoon class was held from 1 PM to 2:30 PM. It is a class for electronic practice, so I do not teach continuously; instead, I have to prepare all the materials. I had half-an-hour discussion with my students from 3 PM. … Continue reading
