There is no reasons to print out all of these notes. The best way to
learn the material in the course is to attend and take notes in lecture
and lab. Use these webnotes to correct or fill in anything you might
have missed during class.
If you must print these notes, please at least set your printer to print 4 or 6
of these pages on one sheet and use both sides if possible. The trees
will thank you for your consideration
