I’d like to make the following changes to QM for Weeks 14, 15, and 16. My intention is not to increase overall workload but rather re-arrange it a bit in a way that makes sense with the material. I’ll start with the changes, and then follow-up with anticipated workload implications.

The syllabus indicates that we will cover Ch. 3 in Week 14, Ch. 3 and Ch. 4 in Week 15, and Ch. 4 in Week 16. I’d like to keep to that, but arranged in the following way:

- Week 14 Tuesday: Ch. 3 lecture/discussion
- Week 14 Thursday: Ch. 3 lecture/discussion
- Week 15 Tuesday: Ch. 3 workshop
- Week 15 Thursday: Ch. 4 lecture/discussion
- Week 16 Tuesday: Ch. 4 lecture/discussion
- Week 16 Thursday: Ch. 4 workshop

Thus, problem sets would be rearranged in the following way:

- Week 14: NO QM PS due Fri. Feb. 1
- Week 15: QM PS#4 due Fri. Feb. 8 (12 problems instead of 8, all from Ch. 3)
- Week 16: QM PS#5 due Fri. Feb. 15 (12 problems instead of 8, all from Ch. 3)
- So, instead of 24 problems divided between 3 Problem Sets, we have 24 problems divided between 2 Problem Sets (and both Problem Set assignments will be available Week 4 Tuesday)

And, we would skip a week for a QM Quiz:

- Week 15: No QM Quiz
- Week 16: QM Quiz 4 (available Mon. Feb. 11) would cover Ch. 3
- Week 17: QM Quiz 5 (available Mon. Feb. 18) would cover Ch. 4
