This is a tentative schedule for the topics to be covered in lecture, labs and assignments.   This schedule will constantly be changing and is given only as a reference for past topics and as a guideline for future topics.

New assignments are given on the day after the previous assignment is due.   HW01 is given on the first day of class.  Always check what assignment is due next!
