Note: In these videos and slides I’m sharing a historical snapshot of my teaching. Things once fresh and avant-garde will soon take on the patina of anachronisms.

Also, even though I am the creator of these lectures, I made them standing on the shoulders of others. Even though this is a derivative work, I’ve made every effort to cite and credit the original creators where possible. Please let me know if you find any errors or omissions.
