Handouts

Handouts and sample files for most of the SEW courses can be found on SharePoint. Use your WatIAM account and password to sign in, and then click on SEW Handouts in the left panel.

If you would like a printed handout for your presentation-style course (i.e., in Mathematics & Computing Building (MC) room 2009), you need to print your own copy and/or download before the class. Attendees will be emailed a reminder and the link to the materials two business days before the course.
