Lecture Notes - Fall 2005

This page contains course notes saved in PowerPoint format as well as links to additional resources that I have created for students.  Due to limited disk space, course notes for the subsequent week's lecture may only be available for a few weeks, so get 'em while they're hot!  Each week I will post a new set of lecture notes within 24 hrs. of the completion of the lecture module (note that some modules run several weeks, so you may not see a posting each week).  Sometimes I will make changes to the slides after I have printed out the notes for class - any postings to this site will reflect any subsequent changes.  I will indicate the final version of the slide by proceeding the description with [final version].  As always, please feel free to drop by Fulton 352B if you have any questions.  Good luck!
