This schedule is tentative and most likely will be revised. Among other things, the assignments are not yet cast in stone. More assignments may be added.
You may also be interested in the Winter 2015 syllabus, which has old copies of scribe notes. The lecture topics may not line up exactly even if the titles are the same.

All assignments are due at 23:55 (i.e., five minutes before midnight) on the date specified. Design problem due dates are one week after the normal lab due dates, with presentations and slides due one week after that; except for Lab 4 where everything is due on the last day of instruction (please ignore statements about due dates in the design-problem web page, as that's for a previous edition of the course). Scribe notes are due one week after the lecture, except for lectures during the last week (due Friday of the last week).
The final exam is three hours and will be held at the time scheduled by the registrar.
