This page enables you to plan your participation in Scientific Computing 272 carefully. Here you’ll find an up-to-date schedule, available in various formats for your convenience.
The 35 contact sessions, mandated by the university calendar, are used as either lectures (I do the talking, you might do some typing), or tutorials (you work, and the demis and I are available to help).

The Fine Print
- Check the schedule carefully for potential problems. Our contact sessions for the entire semester have been mapped out: If you miss anything, you cannot say afterwards that you did not know what was going to happen when.
- I would like to say the schedule is set in stone, but should something unforeseen happen, you will be informed of any changes via e-mail and notices on this website.
- The test dates are from the main university test and examination timetable, and cannot be changed. Check the dates carefully if you are repeating first-year subjects, or you take a subject that is not part of the typical programmes in the mathematical and physical sciences.
