Reading Assignments: The topics discussed in the lectures correspond to the various chapters of the course text. The order is different as I will try to expose you to the material you need to get going on your course project as early on in the semester as possible. The course outline gives the approximate dates for each major topic to be discussed. You are responsible for reading the appropriate chapter from the text and the appropriate set of transparencies from the lecture notes before each class.
Homework Assignments: There will be three homework assignments. They will count for 15% of your final grade.
Exams: The remainder of your final grade will be based on the mid-term (25%) and final exam (30%).
