Last Update: 3/6/18
This course schedule will be updated as the semester progresses.
Lecture outlines, accessed by clicking on the lecture name in the schedule below, will be revised prior to lecture.
Note on the lecture outlines and exams: This course is not as much about memorizing stuff as about thinking about stuff. I suggest you attend class, listen, ask questions, and take notes. Don't print out the lecture outlines, you can get at them anytime you want online. Take notes that supplement the notes online: the stuff I say which clarifies or adds to the materials printed or shown on the lecture outlines. The lecture outlines are not a substitute for attending class or taking your own notes.
