We shall be covering topics from Chapters 3-5 and 16 - 28 in the textbook. However, we will not be following the textbook exactly, and many topics therein will not be covered in class. You should know the material we do cover in class, and read corresponding material in the textbook.

The exam questions will be largely from material covered in class. The daily topics listed below cover only the main points. Make sure to read your notes and the corresponding material in the Textbook.

There is no math required on the exams. They are composed of multiple choice questions to test basic concepts. But you are expected to know important facts, figures and the meaning of some equations.
