General Information Syllabus HW Assignments


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 will always be accurate.
This will be a small class. As such, it is reasonable for our sessions to be fairly conversational and to some extent personalized. One of my goals is to try to make the material seem as natural as possible by encouraging you to aid in the process of discovery; it is expected that you facilitate this by coming to class prepared to contribute ideas.
