### Course Goals

- I want you to gain a firm understanding of the main ideas of
quantum mechanics. In particular, I want you to leave this course
with an understanding of how quantum mechanics differs from
classical mechanics.
- I want you to confront the weirdness of quantum mechanics
head-on. I want you to think critically about science and reality,
about what quantum mechanics might mean.
- I want to help you improve your quantitative reasoning, problem
solving skills, mathematical confidence, and analytical thinking.
- I want you to gain experience thinking about, writing about, and discussing
physical and mathematical phenomena carefully and precisely.
- I want you to work hard and learn some fun and fascinating
physics and math.
