In here, you'll find
- The course syllabus,
- The first week's homework (to be done in preparation for class #2)
- My teaching notes for the first class, and
- The slides from the first class in both PowerPoint and OpenOffice format. If you don't have MS Office or Open Office (which is free BTW), you can download a free PowerPoint viewer here: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=13
Please let me know if you have trouble with the link or the docs.
