Notes and Announcements

 210913 – I posted the problems for lectures 2&3 on Wednesday instead of Tuesday. I did shorten them considerably from previous years, so I think you should be able to turn them in tomorrow as planned, but if you need extra time, you can turn them in through Thursday without penalty.

You should be able to submit your homework through Gradescope via the assignment in ELMS. The Gradescope link code for this class is RW24X5
