Chapter Resources:

Screencast

These are the video tutorials that were created using the PowerPoint slide shows we use in class. Most of the time they are for the entire chapter; however, several chapters have more than one slide show or the slide show itself is broken into a couple different tutorials. These screencasts vary in length. Most are between 15 and 30 minutes in length.

PPT

This is the same PowerPoint slide show that we use in class. It is saved as a "PowerPoint Show" which means you do not have to have PowerPoint installed on your computer to view the slide show.

Slides

This link takes you to a web page on my site that has individual jpg's, diagrams, flash files, etc. that show more detail or more examples of things discussed in the regular chapter PowerPoints. You can view them individually or as a slide show.

Lecture Notes

These are PDF files and include detailed typed out lecture notes for the chapter. These are the lecture notes that I used to create the PowerPoint slide shows. I would recommend having these available while watching the PowerPoint or listening to the Screencast so you can handwrite more details in the margins, etc.

PPT Notes

This is a PDF file that has a single page with blank lines for each slide of the chapter PowerPoint slide show described above.

Worksheets

This is a PDF file that includes all of the worksheets that are required for this chapter. They are usually listed in the order they are required to be completed;therefore, they are not necessarily in numeric order so don't get confused. Use the assignment sheet to help.

Videos

This tab takes you to a page with links to various short videos that I have captured from various internet sites, the videos have been converted to "stand alone" so my students are not subjected to inappropriate language, commercials etc. I'm adding new videos often so take a new look every once in a while.
