- If you can't make my office hours, let me know and we can try to
a time to meet. Here is my schedule
for the fall semester.
The syllabus will include information about grading
policies, exam schedules and policies, etc. You
should definitely read it.
Here's an approximate schedule of
what we'll be doing this semester. Emphasis on the "approximate".
Homework will be due every two or three weeks or so.
Most of the problems will be announced in class, but also reposted here.
There will probably be a few problems not announced in class that are
posted here, so think of whatever ends up here as the definitive list.
The projects at the end of the semester will be in an
as-yet-to-be-determined format - either short presentations or short
papers. Regardless, here is a list of
possible project topics for you to think about. There are of course
lots of other possible topics, just make sure you talk to me before you
decide on one.
