The LOST (Lost and Overwhelmed Student's Turnabout) session is NOT a replacement for lecture or discussion, but is meant as a safe space for students who feel like they have lost contact with the class and need help reconnecting with one or more of the basic concepts. The session will be loosely framed as a structured OH, where your directed questions will help drive the LOST session. The specifics of each session will be dictated by the TA in charge (Kevin M.). In particular, it will not duplicate the contents of the weekly sections, but will instead try to make sure all students have a chance to ask the “stupid” questions they might otherwise be afraid to ask.
