Downloading and Copying

Feel free to download and/or copy course materials on this site for:
  • Class work 
  • Personal use 
I offer these course materials for use primarily by students. I have not edited all the lectures with the attention necessary for publication, so I ask you not to cite these materials in any publication without my permission. This is not meant to apply to student essays, however; in those cases you may cite these materials simply by URL and by date. 

You may of course drop me a line and tell me if they've been of any use to you. Thank you.
