Due to the Coronavirus pandemic my spring semester face-to-face courses could not meet on campus. I therefore recorded what we would normally have done in class including the clicker quiz questions, yellow page questions, and short lectures, and posted them online. There are also two former lectures recorded on snow days.

I am making them available to my online summer sections. I hope you find them helpful.
