### The following calendar gives a timetable for the course. Your class may be slightly behind or ahead at any given time. Below the calendar is a list of sections in the textbook, with suggested problems and on-line material. Some sections will be assigned by your instructor for reading only and will not be discussed in class. Make sure you attend the class regularly to keep pace with the course. The listed problems may be done in class or homework. Your instructor will be more specific. You should attempt them all. Starred problems may be more challenging. (Note: In the problem lists, a notation like 3-9 means that all the problems 3,4,5,6,7,8,9 are assigned. A notation like" 3-9 odd"  means that problems 3,5,7,9 are assigned.)
