Lecture exercises will supplement selected web-based lectures. The exercises will consist of a set of questions that pertain to the material presented in the lecture [or set of lectures]. The questions may be short answer in form and derived straight from the lecture(s).

These graded exercises are due one week after they are given out. The exercise given out on June 19 is due back by June 22.
The exercises required are listed here:
|Introduction to Injury Epidemiology|
