Syllabus

The following is a tentative syllabus for the course. This page will be updated irregularly.
On the other hand, the weekly syllabus contained in the Homework Assignments page should always be accurate, if incomplete.

Class may meet on regular class days or on x-hours; make sure to keep all these times open.
Each week's schedule will be set by the end of the preceding week.

For the first week, we will meet on Wednesday and Friday as indicated.
There may be an optional question session during the x-hour on Thursday.
