Schedule

Here’s your roadmap for the semester!

Occasionally problem sets are due on the day of an exam.I’m so sorry! :(

Since problem sets are technically not due until midnight, and exams are done in class, this means those problem sets will be due after the exam. However, the problem sets are designed to help you with the exams, so it’s probably wise to do them before midnight on those days.
