These Notes cover weeks 2-13 of content. They include lecture notes, reading notes and notes from videos posted on canvas. There is a table of contents at the beginning for ease of use. On the occasion that there is no specific lecture heading is often because I have combined my reading notes with my lecture notes taken in class.
