Notes

This is where I'll post the notes that help me guide our discussion sessions. They are far from complete, as they are simply meant to jog my memory, so they should not be considered a substitute for attending section. Usually in discussion we will cover some small subset of the notes in more detail than you find here. Finally, remember that these are just quick notes, so I cannot guarantee that they are error-free.
