Lesson. Now you are ready to view the lesson. The lesson will start with the information provided on the handout and additional notes will pop up during the lesson, much the way it would happen in a live lecture. If you find the lecture is moving too fast for you to write down all the information that pops up, just click the pause button to catch up, and then click the play button to resume.

Supplemental Information. Just in case you wish to look at the actual spreadsheet, it is provided. This spreadsheet doesn't do any calculations, it was used to simply plot the values and areas were plotted manually. Download spreadsheet (.xslx). (IE users: Right click the link to save the target file if you don't want it to open in your browser).

Additional Web Tools

In addition to the lessons, you will interact with the instructor and other students using a discussion board system. This system uses threads to follow conversations. Each time a message is posted, you will receive a copy. In addition, if you visit the website, you can follow the entire discussion at any time that is convenient for review.

Also available will be a live Chat room, online postings of homework solutions, and current grades so you know where you are in the course.
