Student Notes- I will post student notes as PowerPoint presentations. They are an abbreviated version of the notes I will present in class. You may print these ahead of time - I would strongly recommend that you print these as "handouts" and select 3 slides to a page so you have room to take additional notes. You will find these options on the print menu. If you have any questions, please ask!
