Handouts and Lecture Notes

Handouts with gaps, and filled in lecture slides, available here (Raven protected).

Lecture and "Examples Class" Video Extracts

The following clips show Powerpoint presentations with audio, covering selected topics in the course which students often find more challenging. Treat the "Examples Class" Extracts like the cribs - i.e. only consult these after you have been through the notes or the lecture clip and made a good attempt at the problem independently. Stop the clip when you think you know how to proceed, and try the problem again on your own.
