Things to note:
1. Everything is unchanged for the week of April 16-20; the readings for the following two weeks are changed.
2. The class evaluation will be on Monday, April 23; please try to attend class that day as it is important for me to get feedback.
3. I am out of town on Thursday, April 26, the day before Exam #4. Thus homework #13 will be due a day early, on Wednesday. Further, I will have extra office hours that week to make up for missing Thursday and for the early homework due date:
Tuesday April 24, 1 – 6 pm, Emerson 309
Tuesday April 24, 7 – 8:30 pm, Emerson 363 (as usual)
Wednesday, April 25, 1 – 5 pm, Emerson 309
If you cannot make these office hours but need to see me before Exam #4, please let me know and I can schedule time to talk with you in the mornings. I will be leaving Wednesday evening, though, and thus have to cancel my usual Wednesday evening office hours.
4. I will arrange to have additional office hours and/or a review session before the final exam.
