General Information | Syllabus | HW Assignments |

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 Wednesday and Friday as indicated, but NOT on Saturday.
