### Schedule

The schedule below is a record of what we have actually done as well as an approximate projection of what we will do. Assignments, worksheets, and exams will be posted here after they are distributed in class. Solutions to odd-numbered problems are in the textbook and you should use them to check your work. Note that earlier-numbered problems are often more abstract and for this reason may be more difficult than later problems. You may want to start with problems from the "Applied Exercises" section.
