Course Calendar, Homework Schedule, and Notes
Below is a tentative schedule for this semester which the topics covered in each class session. Additionally I will post pdf's of my lecture notes notes here. Important dates such as exams, reading days, etc. will also appear here. This calendar will be updated frequently and is subject to change.
There will be online homework through MyLab-Math as well as written homework which is to be scanned and then uploaded through Gradescope. Below is the calendar containing the due dates of both the online and written homework. These due dates are also posted on MyLab-Math and Gradescope. All homework is due at 11:59pm on the date indicated.
