Tentative Course Schedule

Last Revised December 31

This schedule is only tentative, and is based on the actual schedule
for an M362K class I taught in 2001. My hope is to go slightly
faster than this schedule, and to have time for some additional special
topics at the end. If we fall behind, we'll have to cut out some
of the review dates and special topics (like statistics and elections).
