    Schedule (READ CAREFULLY):

    I will use a flipped classroom approach where, each week, I would like you to:

    1. Familiarise yourself with the material for the week.  You can simply read the lecture notes or go through the recordings available on MyCourses.
    2. Participate in the weekly seminar, where I will give a summary of the theory and introduce example problems.  (in person only) 
    3. Join the calculation hours, where I will be available to answer your questions about the assignment. (in person only) 

    Both seminars and calculation hours are in Otakaari 4, room 216 from 14.15-16.00.

    There are several changes to the schedule from one week to the next because of public holidays and other engagements.  Here is the schedule for each week:

    1 Wednesday  Thursday
    2 Tuesday Thursday
    3 Wednesday Friday
    4 Tuesday Thursday
    5 Wednesday Thursday
