This page is set up to provide you with the notes used in class and any additional reading material that is not provided by our book. (You should see in the syllabus where I've listed "additional reading".) Typically, the notes will not be available until two or three days before the class period in which they are needed. Please visit this page frequently to be sure not to miss any postings.
All of these documents are in either PowerPoint, HTML or PDF format. If you do not have a copy of the Adobe Acrobat Viewer for the PDF files, download the free copy from their web site.
