Lessons & Assignments

The table below presents a sequence of lessons for this course. While many lessons are worded so that they could be used as self-directed learning aids, they are no substitute for the lessons you will get in class. I will use these lessons while teaching but there will be a great deal of additional information provided as I teach that is not in the written content on this page. It is in the best interest of students to pay close attention in class and to work throught the sample assignments I will give during the lessons before attempting assignments.
