Notes

this syllabus

The syllabus, like any web page, is subject to change at the teacher's discretion. Elaboration will occur.
meeting schedule
In general we will meet twice per week; however, I reserve the right to the third meeting, as circumstance dictates.
performance
I am assuming that you are self motivated, and so will take all assignments personally, going above and beyond the letter of the law; but, I also assume that people will get away with whatever they can. Assume that what I assign is only a baseline, not even a minimum.
