Schedule of Classes, Assignments, and Video Recordings

The date on which I begin each topic is subject to change. I intend to update this schedule to reflect that actual starting dates for the topics during the semester. It's simply too difficult to predict in advance just how long it will take to adequately cover each topic. – LB
