1101 BREAKOUT SECTION SLIDES

I have compiled the breakout section slides I reviewed this semester on this page to help my students prepare for their final exam. As a general rule, I use slides for organizational purposes and to display visual information. These slides outline course plans, but require students to fill-in definitions, answers to questions, etc. So, these slides do not substitute for attending section, but refresh your recollection of what we covered in section and topics you want to review for final exam.
