PowerPoint Chapter 1 Lecture As you read through these lecture notes, you may find that it is useful to print the lecture material and read along as you view the slide show posted. In addition, you may wish to work through the tasks as they are presented and explained as we go along, rather than waiting until you view the entire slide show and lecture notes.
