During the semester, I will be recording my lectures,
converting them into .mp3 format and posting them on this page. The lectures
will remain available for the full semester. However,to save disk space, after an exam, I will remove all the recorded lectures that do not contain content that will be tested for on subsequent exam. The recorded
lectures on this site will also be posted as podcasts. The url for the
podcasts is http://www.cindy.sifonis.com/Classes/Exp250/ExpPodcast.rss.
The .mp3s will contain my lectures but not in-class demonstrations or films. The
powerpoint for the lecture is posted, so it is possible to use the mp3 in combination with the lecture handouts to study for classes that you might have missed. Keep in mind though, that class attendance is required in the course and important content will not always be captures on the mp3 recordings.

demonstrations, and specific examples presented during the lecture.
These are the assignments you will be given during the semester. On

what the requirements are for the assignment.
I frequently get asked about the nature of the questions on the tests
the material my students are expected to know. I have found that
practice tests is very helpful in preparing for the test. At the very
taking the practice test may inform you as to what material you still
