*Note: For some units - not all of them - I will provide a transcript - with images - of a class lecture that covers materials that will not be found in the textbook. Sometimes - as in this instance - it will replace a text reading assignment, in other instances it will provide materials that will supplement the text and other readings. By clicking on the link above, you will be taken to a web page where you simply scroll down to view the materials.
