Summary of material covered:

These links will be updated as the class progresses.  If I have not posted anything for the previous week by the next Monday feel free to remind me to put my notes on the web.

Homework help sessions:   I will be available to help with the homework on Wednesday evenings.  Typically I meet with GSCI101 &  PHYS250 students starting around 4:00 PM and I can be found in either , 2312, 2378 or 2178.  I leave when students are finished or if there are no students that need I help then I head home around 6:30 PM.
