Lectures


Please find links to different class lectures in the sub-pages below.


Please note that the textbook for this course is ``Introduction to Computers'' by Peter Norton. The publisher of this book (Mcgraw-Hill) maintains a useful website for this book, containing many student resources, here. Please familiarize yourself and benefit from the student resources.

For each lecture, I'd be uploading the relevant chapter's Powerpoint slides from Mcgraw-Hill's site for the convenience of the students.

For interested students, the student resources for the book "Introduction to Information Technology" by Williams and Sawyer can be found here.
