You are strongly encouraged to come to office hours, both with me and your TA. You might find the course content office hours most helpful if you have specific questions prepared, but I also welcome you to come and listen to your peers' questions.
In addition to the traditional "course content" office hours, I am also holding "social" office hours for my students to get to know me, their classmates and peers at UCLA, and (occasionally) professional mathematicians. There will often be a topic or reading to guide the conversation.

Mathematics for Human Flourishing  Thursday 5/26, 12pm  TBD  
For this office hour, you will read the following essay/talk by Francis Su (Harvey Mudd College). Abstract: Why does the practice of mathematics often fall short of our ideals and hopes? How can the deeply human themes that drive us to do mathematics be channeled to build a more beautiful and just world in which all can truly flourish? I gave this Retiring Presidential Address at the AMSMAA Joint Winter Meetings on January 6, 2017 at the end of my term as President of the Mathematical Association of America.

Resources
The Student Math Center holds open office hours this semester.
The math department runs the Directed Reading Program (DRP), which is a program that pairs undergraduate students with graduate student mentors to undertake independent projects in mathematics. I highly recommend it, especially if you are interested in pursuing mathematics further.
UCLA has a multitude of groups, resources, and services available to support your academic success, your social belonging, your physical and mental health, and your overall wellbeing. You can explore these resources here.
