The two most important sections of the syllabus to pay attention to during the first week are the Policies page and the Weekly Calendar. The Policies section includes information on required books, attendance, grading, and making appointments to visit my office hours. Each class day is marked on the weekly calendar. The entry for any particular day will list what we'll be doing in class, any reading you should be prepared to discuss, and any formal assignments that are due on that day. Both pages are linked on the top menu of the course website.
