**Description of duties:** An **Instructor of Record** is completely in charge of a course. A **Teaching Assistant** is in charge of delivering quizzes and (for Math 150 - Math 152) teaching introductory Python to 3 course sections, each of approximately 30 students. Teaching assistants meet twice a week with each course section, outside of lectures. They are also in charge of partially grading homework assignments, quizzes, or exams. A **Help Session tutor** offers tutoring services for specific courses outside of the classroom. A **Grader** is in charge of grading homework assignments for an upper-level undergraduate or graduate mathematics course.
