General information about the course (TA's OHs updated 02/04)

Notes for Lectures 1-7
(02/18 update: Sections 10,12 slightly expanded). This is likely the end
of the notes.

**Bonus:** 1 HW pt for each typo you find,
3pts for minor error,
5pts for significant error, 10pts for very significant error
(only 1 bonus per typo/error, to the first person who let's me know;
the points will be added to your problem set scores)
