Confused? Just ask.

If you are finding an assignment to be confusing, ask your professor for clarification! Sounds simple, but I know that often students are hesitant to ask either because they think they should just "get it" or that the professor may be annoyed. I can tell you though, that most of us on the teaching side would much rather hear those questions.

When you convey that something is confusing, it helps us recognize elements of a syllabus or assignment that may not be clear (not only to you, but to other students).

Also, we would rather you ask, and get on the right track, than to guess and possibly guess wrong and then go down the wrong path with your work. So, if you are confused, ask for clarification.

Good luck with the work!
