I taught this course for a semester in 2003, and found the lesson preparation quite overwhelming. This was especially the case since I was given very little guidance and no clear objectives. In the hope that it might be of some assistance to other teachers who find themselves in a similar situation, I have collected together some notes on how I ran the course, and the Microsoft Powerpoint presentations which I used during the lectures. Of course, I do not expect that any teacher would follow these notes to the letter, since their own lessons will naturally be influenced by their individual expertise and their ideas about teaching. I would like to make it clear that this is not an ideal teaching plan, and if I taught the course again I would certainly make some alterations.
