Notice for Students
I will inform you on how to obtain the textbook via NUCT before our first class. It would be best if you can consult the textbook beforehand in order to choose the chapter you will like to make a presentation on. If several people want to make a presentation on the same chapter, we might have to sort things out at our first class so it will be advisable for your to think of 2nd and 3rd choices of chapters.
