Below is the calendar for this semester course. This is the preliminary schedule, which may be altered as the semester progresses to adjust for class progress and content. It is the responsibility of the students to frequently check this web-page for schedule, readings, and assignment changes. As the professor, I will attempt to announce any change to the class, but this web-page should be viewed as authoritative. If you have any questions, please contact me (contact information is available at the course homepage).
