MATH 230     Syllabus and Suggested Class Pace     Spring 2014

Please note that your instructor will likely adjust the syllabus from time to time. Exam dates may vary from the ones indicated. It is the student's responsibility to monitor the pace of the lectures. If you must miss a class, find out precisely which material you must learn on your own.

Some of the material is presented twice in the text, in slightly different ways; we will be using the "starred" versions of sections 6.2-6.4.
