Homework problems will generally be provided to you at least two class meetings or six days before they are due, whichever comes first. Lab assignments will usually be provided on the day of the lab. All assignments are due at the beginning of class on the due date unless specified otherwise.

The schedule below will be updated as the semester proceeds and due dates become known. (I reserve the right to modify this schedule in response to unforeseen events.)
