You are responsible for reading the chapters in the text
according to the posted
schedule, possibly modified by announcements in class. You are to
read the material before the lecture that covers it, and you may want
to reread it afterwards also. You are responsible for the material in
these chapters whether or not they are covered explicitly in class,
but you should feel free to ask about anything you think needs more
clarification, both in lecture and in recitation.
Read each lab assignment
as soon you finish the previous one. It is expected that you will
begin working on it in a recitation meeting, but do the background
reading ahead of time, and you can even begin working on the lab
The first lab assignment is out this week.
Labs begin meeting this week.
You should spend at least 2 hours on this course (and every
course) outside of class for each credit hour the course carries.
