Announcement about course modality
Like most courses at UC San Diego in the Fall of 2021, Math 180C will be taught in-person. However, because there are likely to be some students who will be unable to be on campus, the following accommodations will be made:
- All lectures and discussion sections will be podcasted, and the recordings will be available to students enrolled in the class.
- Although the instructor and TA will hold regularly scheduled office hours in-person, students will also have the opportunity to request one-on-one meetings with the instructor or TA over Zoom.
- All students will submit their homework for the course electronically in Gradescope.
- To ensure academic integrity, it is important for all students to be physically present for exams, if possible. However, students will be permitted to take exams remotely, and be proctored over Zoom, in the following two circumstances:
- International students who are unable to travel to the United States will be permitted to take their exams remotely.
- Students who are unable to attend an exam because they have tested positive for COVID-19, they are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or they need to quarantine because they have potentially been exposed to COVID-19, will be permitted to take the exam remotely.

Jason Schweinsberg (in AP&M, Room 6157): Mondays 4:00-5:00 PM, Wednesdays 2:00-3:00 PM, Thursdays 3:30-5:00 PM.
Toni Gui (in AP&M, Room 1161): Thursdays 9:30-11:00 AM, Fridays 10:00-11:00 AM.
Students are also welcome to make appointments to meet with the instructor or the TA over Zoom. Please email the instructor or TA if you are interested in this option.
Because the homework problems will not come from any textbook, no textbook is strictly required. The following books are good references:
Essentials of Stochastic Processes by Richard Durrett, which is available online here through the UCSD library.
Introduction to Stochastic Processes with R by Robert Dobrow, which is available online here through the UCSD library.
