Course Format: This class meets twice per week. I will be following the flow of topics and concepts in the book selectively, but I will also spend time on how to solve related problems. Questions are always welcome; please don't hesitate to interrupt at any point. Lecture notes will be on the Blackboard website at least 24 hours in advance of class. The goal is to give you the broad framework of the lecture and allow you to spend your class time listening and writing down clarifying notes/examples, rather than writing like crazy without having the time to understand the intuition of what is being taught. Solving the problems from the “Questions and Problems” section in the back of each chapter is essential. For each chapter, I have given you a list of suggested problems. These problems are representative of what you might see on an exam or quiz, but it is not an exhaustive list. If you find the problems difficult or if you want further practice, it may be to your advantage to solve some of the other problems from the “Questions and Problems” section. Regular class attendance is expected. The pace of the course will be fast, so it's important
