Class & Lab Calendar

The Class Calendar constitutes our most important class document; it contains the schedule of problem sets, exams, classes, workshops, readings, spreadsheets, and quizzes.  The calendar shows that our course is a blend of activities, ranging from motor skills in the lab to symbol manipulation in the class and computer.  Thus, it reflects the professional world well.
