Course Format: The course will be presented to you in a traditional lecture format including face to face lectures, class-wide discussion, in class practices, and various online requirements. A copy of lecture notes and PowerPoint materials are available at the class web site (blackboard) under Course Documents . Due to the length of the class, there will be a five-minute break at roughly the halfway point. My request is that everyone does the best they can to prevent breaks from lasting much longer than that, and to get settled as quickly as possible once they are over. Exams: There will be three in class exams (maximum of one hour), in addition to the final exam. I will continue my lectures after each exam. The first exam will be given approximately Wednesday, October 21 st . The second exam will be given approximately Monday, November 9 th . The approximate date for the third exam is Wednesday, November 18 th . Depending on how we progress through the material during the term, it is possible that these dates could be adjusted.
