# Outline and schedule¶

There is a lot of material to cover (see Course information for an overview of topics and goals). It will not be possible to cover everything in detail in lectures.

The textbook [FVMHP] covers many details that will be omitted from lectures. You
should read the relevant sections *before* lecture and come with any
questions you have about the material.

See the class Canvas page for videos to watch before lectures. Note that many of the slides indicate in the bottom right corner what section of the book is most relevant. The slides can be found in the slides directory of the Class GitHub Repository.

See Homework and midterm for Homework schedule and assignments.
