Supplemental information for class

Required Material For Lecture and Labs Units
To prepare for the lecture and the labs please print each of the lecture notes files, the lab manual, and the readings that go with the lab manual, i.e., all the files within this "Required" materials section.

NOTE: a few students report trouble opening some of the files below on occasion. The problem lies with the browser the student is using. Use a different browser, perhaps even a different computer and the file will be available. Or save the file to your computer and print the file from there (do not open the file WITHIN a browser window, that is what can not handle the large file size).
