lick on the topic to see the outline for that class.

These are the same outlines provided at the beginning of every class. Please remember that the outlines are intended as supplements only. They are designed to help you organize your notes and prepare for the exam and should in no way replace class attendance. If class attendance drops, I will stop posting the outlines on the web. Note that the outlines will be posted only after the relevant class.

The outlines are in PDF format and can be read with Adode Acrobat. Click to download a free copy of Adobe Acrobat.

In addition to the outlines, I have included links to relevant web pages associated with the topics we are discussing.
