Below is the current calendar for the CSE142 class. Please keep in mind that we are constantly updating this. It should accurately describe the past, but it won't always accurately predict the future. Although Riley doesn't often use lecture slides, there are links to slides that have been created by our textbook's coauthor, Marty Stepp. These might prove useful for students who either miss lecture or want an extra opportunity to review the material.
