focus on key concepts and introduce "real world" examples. Lecture notes will be available on
the course website. However, these notes will summarize the main points made in class, and
are not sufficient, by themselves, to ensure a high score on the exams. They are provided as a
note-taking aid, but are not meant to replace note-taking during class. In other words, many
things will be said in class that do not appear in the PowerPoint slides or in the textbook, but
may appear on the exam.
Discussion and questions.
Discussion between students and the instructor is critical to the
learning experience. In some instances you may disagree with the text or what is said in class.
