D2L page:

More information is available on D2L, where I will post the syllabus, homework assignments and solutions, exams, and more. This webpage is primarily for posting recorded lectures.

Homework and Exams

There will be eight homework assignments, two midterm exams, and one final exam. The dates are marked below, but you can find and submit the assignments on D2L. No part of your grade will depend on coming to class.

Detailed Schedule

The textbook sections listed below are a good source for what we'll talk about on each day, but we won't always cover everything the textbook covers, or do things in the same order. I am not going to expect you to learn material from the textbook that I don't cover in lectures.

If you are interested in my slides, here are the links. I don't think that reading the slides is a good replacement for watching the lecture videos or attending class.

My goal is to have all the recordings for each week posted by the beginning of that week.
