# MA1023 - Calculus IIILecture Notes - D 2000

Lecture notes will be available (almost always) on the afternoon before each lecture. The notes are currently provided in post-script format. They can either be viewed using a post-script viewer or printed on a laserprinter. (Good tools for your PC are
Ghostctipt and ghostView)

While the lecture notes contain an outline of the material covered in lecture, other material is often written on them during lecture. (All of the jokes are left out.)
