Lecture Notes

These lecture outlines are just outlines - they do not include all the information discussed in class. You can check before class to see if the outline is available and use it as a framework for writing your notes. However, information may change or the coverage of the topics may change in lecture.

The lecture outlines are in PDF format. They are not readable on-line - they must be downloaded. To open the files you will need a copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader which is available for free at the Adobe site
