Workshop Leaders: Willie Reed and Emily Eisenburg
In the week before the one in which a lab is due, there will be two recitation sessions on Monday and Thursday at 5 to 6pm in 703. The project sessions are led by Qing Guo and Hao Luo with the help from the two workshop leaders. Since the material overlaps, you are adviced to come to one of the recitation sessions each week.
In the other weeks, there will be two workshops run by Willie Reed and Emily Eisenburg. The days, Mondays and Thursdays, and the location, CSB 703, are the same as the project sessions, but the time is two hours later, 7pm to 8pm.
Lecture notes will be posted after each class.
Readings refer to the chapter number(s) in the textbook.
