### Syllabus

We will cover more or less Chapters 1-8 in the textbook.

The following is a slightly more detailed 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 is expected to meet on every day listed here. During most weeks we will meet three times; sometimes we will meet during the x-hour on Tuesday. Each week's schedule should be set by the end of the preceding week. For the first week, we will meet on Monday, Wednesday and Friday as indicated.
