Remember look level and read the bottom of the meniscus. Estimate between the lines, don't just round. Take your time. See what your eyes are trying to show you !!!

Check below for the "ideal" class schedule. Changes may be made without notice. Schedule will depend on adequate progress and materials availability. Underlined words are links mostly to outside pages that provide more information on the topic. With the time limitations imposed by hybrid teaching (due to COVID-19) the exact timing of a syllabus is not possible to predict. The sequence of topics will be maintained with some adjustments.
