Grading: Weekly assignments; three midterms, and several projects. The weekly assignments mostly involve theoretical problems. Solutions are posted after the due dates. The projects are applied problems.

The midterms will be on Sept 26th (midterm 1), Oct 31rd (midterm 2), and Nov 28th (midterm 3). There are no makeup tests, so you need to ensure that you are on campus at those time in order to take them.

Lecture notes: These are my lectures notes, written to myself. Feel free to use them if you wish, but they are likely to be rough around the edges. So read carefully.
