We are still in the process of migrating this page to the "new" Google site. At any rate, there is a better and simpler page to use for access to all our lectures for each topic - the Overview of Lectures page.


Each topic contains:

  • Lecture notes are pdf files which can be downloaded and saved to be read off-line
  • Lecture videos are YouTube videos of lectures
  • Lecture PowerPoint slides are the actual PowerPoint slides used in class
  • Use the Practice Quizzes to test your knowledge
  • When doing your homework assignments, work out the problems first before looking at the solutions. Compare your answers to the ones in the solutions
