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.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
