Reading: Students are expected to read the text and to remain ahead of the classroom presentations. Some of the concepts introduced in class are typically not properly grasped following a single presentation. Reading, regular attendance, and participation in the recitation section tend to improve students’ understanding of the material. Students should read at least Chapters 1 and 2 before the next class.
