Lecture notes

For each lecture the lecture notes will include the assignment for that class, important announcements (if there are any), solutions to previously assigned exercises, and an outline of the lecture. The outline normally contains a list of all topics to be covered in the lecture (sometimes with additional details) and the example programs to be discussed. These documents will be made available as they are completed. Normally this will be shortly before the lecture.
* Example programs
These are the example programs discussed in lecture.
