* These slides are in .pdf format, as they are Beamer presentations made with LaTeX. Open these in a PDF viewer in a fullscreen view, and they operate like a familiar powerpoint presentation where you can move to the next slide with the arrow keys.

** Handouts are in the same format, but all content on the slide is shown at once, not slowly revealed.

*** Printouts are the same format as handouts but with a white background, best for printing. Last Updated: 8 October 2013
