Second Edition

Note: The second edition was available from 1999-2002. Here is the material for the third edition.

On-line Support Material (Students and Instructors) for the Second Edition.

To read files in Postscript, you need ghostview or gv. These are public domain packages that you can locate on the web (see Ghostview/gv Home Page); check with your computer support staff if your system does not support them.

On-line Support Material (Only for Instructors) for the Second Edition.

Note that students can freely access the solutions to odd-numbered chapter exercises! Instructors are welcome to redistribute lecture slides (together with any modifications they make). Minibase solutions are not available to students.

I usually distribute chapter exercise solutions and lecture slides at the beginning of the semester since students find this to be valuable in reviewing lectures and preparing for tests. I also find that guaranteeing that a percentage of exam questions will be modified chapter exercises acts as a powerful motivation for working through these exercises :-)
