  • There are a few links to websites on Calculus, to remind you of basic knowledge needed for understanding asymptotic analysis.
  • As the rescheduling for B3 is not possible, we will keep everything the same way as they were supposed to be.
  • If there are not enough seats in the class, those of you whose force registration forms I signed during the first week of class should volunteer to sit on the floor. I expect this situation to go on for a few weeks, after people have done dropping everything should be OK. Thanks a lot for your cooperation, and sorry for the inconvenience.
  • The final exam schedule is settled. It'll be on Thursday Dec 19, 11:45am-02:45pm, DFN 146. Please be very certain that your winter-break schedule does not interfere with the final exam. I will not give early exam unless absolutely unavoidable, in which case you must have a proof of the situation.

  • Let the fun begin ...
  • Students who are in recitation section B3 (Fridays, 10:00-10:50, 422 FRNCZK) should pick either B1 (Mondays, 12:00-12:50, 250 PARK) or B2 (Thursdays, 15:30-16:20, 209 NORTON) to attend instead. This is due to time conflicts in the TAs' schedules.
    Thus, we won't have any recitation on Fridays.
    The lectures' place and time remain the same though: MWF 9:00-9:50, Knox 14
  • There will be no recitation in the first week of class.
