Notes and Announcements

190211 - It was pointed out to me that the PDF of today's lecture slides was low resolution and did not show part of some graphics. I had been compressing the files for larger-sized lectures (so far, #1 and #5) to keep the download sizes down, but I've changed the links to download the original (non-compressed) PDFs. Hopefully that will help.
