Lecture Notes

Below are powerpoint slides for each chapter.  Keep in mind that these are not a substitute for class attendance and participation.  You can dowload PowerPoint presentation files on the school computers, which all have PowerPoint software to view and/or print them for class.  I recommend printing 6 slides per page.  (This is an available printing option).

To print multiple slides per page:

    * Open the file in PowerPoint
    * Go to File, then Print
    * At the bottom of the print window, next to Print what, select handouts(6 slides per page) or handouts (9 slides per page)
    * Click Okay.

If you do not have PowerPoint on the computer you use, you can download the PowerPoint viewer for free from Microsoft. This will allow you to view the files.  You can also download use the free, open source, software called Open Office to view and print the slides.  This is an alternative to Microsoft Office.

I have also included HTML files of lectures notes I used when teaching this course online.  Use whatever form works best for you.
