Week 6

Tuesday will be running on a Monday schedule CUNY wide, so I will not hold my regular office hours. However, I will hold office hours on Thursday instead of a live class session. So for next week, you will only have one video lecture.

Due to this shortened week, I have decided to have one homework assignment for Week 5 and Week 6. Accordingly, the assignment below will be due on October 7. But, a large portion of the assignment can be done after Week 5.
