The Structure of Mission 2015
Solving Complex Problems (12.000) meets Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 3 to 4 pm. Depending on the nature of each day's class, the meeting may take place in a standard lecture hall with fixed seating (32-123 or 32-155 Stata Center and 3-270) or a room with tables and chairs that can be moved (32-144). Team meetings will vary and some rooms will be made available as needed. Please learn to check the website each day before class as on occasion last minute changes do occur
Because the location changes so frequently you must familiarize yourself with the locations of these classrooms. Also, you should check this website before each class to make sure that you know where to go. Attendance at all classes is mandatory and not knowing where you are supposed to go is not an excuse.
Learn your team
After the second class meeting on September 9th, students in Mission 2015 will be divided into ten teams, each of which will be responsible for doing background research on one aspect of the final problem and for proposing prelininary components of the final solution. Once you know your team assignment, you will need to consult the Community page in order to know where your team will meet each week.
Other than the initial Introductory meeting, there are five different meeting types: Information Sessions, Case Study Sessions, Team Meetings, Coordination Meetings, and Freeform Sessions.
