You should download and print these Lecture outlines either the afternoon before or the morning of each Lecture. During the Lecture, I will move quickly through material which I know is on the outline, giving you more time to take notes on the Examples.

Complex Numbers I, Complex Numbers II

The text does not cover Complex Numbers as a topic, so we will rely on notes prepared by Dr. Mike Boyle: 141 complex number notes (C#N). [You can also link to them from the Math Department's course information page.]

There’s also a 141 complex number summary.

Although we won’t be using it directly, you may find 141 complex number notes Hamilton has some useful information.
