This is the planned schedule for the semester. If there's a need to make changes, I will try to do so as early as possible.
The entries for lectures link to the outlines for the relevant chapters; the lab entries (will) link to the to lab instructions and materials. It's a good idea to look over the lab handout before coming to lab.
Lectures meet in MCC 105, and labs meet in MCC 209. Come to 209 on days when a lecture and a lab are both scheduled. All exams are given online in MCC 209. Regular exams are scheduled along with a lecture. We'll meet in MCC 209 for the first half hour to take the exam, then move to MCC 105 for the lecture.
I don't really like to split the day between lecture and exam, but there's really now way around it with six exams on a Tuesday-Thursday schedule.
Note that the final exam is on a Saturday.
