Spring 2008
Instructor: Alan Stein



Meeting Times

Section 31: MWF 8:00-9:10
Section 32: MWF 9:30-10:40


Note that this class meets only twenty times during the entire semester and that the final examination is given during the last meeting, so that, effectively, there are only nineteen working class sessions during the entire summer semester. Thus, each single session is the equivalent of nearly a full regular semester week, making it extremely important that students attend each and every class meeting.
