Welcome to the Members Page! Here, you will find the handouts traditionally given in classes. I will have hard copies available for you in class, but if possible please read on-screen rather than printing.I have been collecting these handouts over the years and you will see credits given to the authors of the handouts.
Sharing is encouraged but PLEASE keep the credits intact. Enjoy! ~Jane
