Magic Grade Calculator. Use this spreadsheet to track your progress
and estimate your grade in the course.
Reminder: The Final is Wednesday May 23 2:45-4:45 PM Room: EAS-2000. A formula sheet similar to the
one in the appendix of your workbook will be attached.

COURSE LECTURE NOTES:
I've written out a full set of lecture notes for this course as
a possible study aid and summary of the text. Sometimes seeing things
a little differently helps. It also emphasizes the main points and fills in a few blanks in the text.
Just another service I provide.
Here's some old lecture notes as transparencies back when I used to lecture to several sections at once in the big
lecture hall 8-1250. They're basically the same material, different examples, so I scanned them in as another
possible study aid.
