No individual letter grades will be given for midterm, or final. You will get a letter grade for the course that is based on your overall score.

SCHEDULE: The course schedule is available here. It will be very beneficial to you if you read the indicated chapters before lecture. Of course you should read them after lecture, and don't read the text like a novel. Work through as many exercises as you can, and at least the recommended ones. You can find the homework that is due, and the recommended problems here.

CALCULATOR: You will need one that adds, subtracts, multiplies, divides, takes square roots, raises numbers to a power, and preferably also computes factorials. Statistical calculators are unnecessary.
