## Schedule -- Dreyfus

Notes:

• This schedule is tentative and subject to change.
• RECITATIONS/LABS BEGIN 9/8
• For the Reading Assignments, you need to ask a question online in Webassign on (usually) two of the assigned readings. These are generally due at NOON the previous day and worth about 2 participation points each. Yes, they add up.
• Some slides will be posted in Adobe pdf format on Canvas after the class (never before!) takes place. Note that these slides only represent a skeleton of the presentation and will rarely include solutions to problems and questions posed, derivations, or representations of class discussions. If you miss a class, these notes do not suffice to fill you in on what happened! Be sure to check with someone who actually attended!
