Outlines


Tentative Schedule/Outlines: If I teach your class using technology (re: projectors & powerpoints), these outlines will be useful to you. Here you will be able to access in advance all of the outlines presented in the slides in class. Feel free to download them and either make physical copies or use them digitally – whichever is easier for you. I provide these for you to make your preparation for the exams easier. Please take advantage of this aid, as it will help you better organize the material.

Please note: I constantly update my classes from semester to semester. As a result, some of the outlines may be out of date. Also, there are time when I completely remove a previously listed class in order to replace it will new outlines. If you notice significant difference between what you see below and what is presented in class or I have fallen behind in my updates, just let me know and I will make the corrects ASAP.
