These posted notes are not a substitute for attending class
reading the textbook. A great deal is said in class that never makes it to
this "electronic blackboard", and if you're not present, you'll miss it.
Anything said in class, anything in your textbook readings is fair game for exams, even if it's not in the notes.
Readings in Campbell for each lecture are shown next to the appropriate lecture notes link.
