You can view each of the handouts as either an HTML file or an Adobe Acrobat PDF.   PDF viewing requires the free Adobe Acrobat Reader browser plug-in, but provides a higher resolution image.  It produces a better printout, almost exactly like those I distribute in class.  If you do not have the plug-in installed, you will get a message prompting you to save the file whenever you click on a PDF link.  To download the free Adobe Acrobat Reader installation program, click the icon below.
