Course Notes - Winter 2006

Note to students: I will be revising the notes this year, and approaching the course with a different outline.  Updated notes will be indicated by the yellow highlighted box on the left of each row.

Links to notes from previous courses are located at the bottom of this page.

Visiting students and academics from other universities, as well as students thinking about taking this course - please send me an email: rschurko@uwindsor.ca if you would like the password to access these notes.
