Default Lecture 3 Errata

I didn't see an existing thread for this... let me know if there is one!

Slide 18 misnumbering? iTunesU_Lecture03_April_10.pdf pages 20 and 21 are both numbered "18", although the former is grayed out. Is this a spurious "slide transition"? (Slide numbers turn black once all formulas are displayed)

Hmm, no way to edit existing posts? Here's a link to the pdf in question, for convenience:

Welcome to the board.

There are a couple of spots in the slides where the numbers are off. In the case of page 18 of Lecture 3, I opted not to correct it in order not to have later slides in the video have different numbers from the pdf slides. In Lecture 2, where the problem is more significant, I corrected the numbering in the slides.

Your remark about the greying of numbers is correct. This was the method I used to create the incremental slides used in the video. The errors in numbering happened when I forgot to set the "final slide" parameter right in the heat of preparing the lectures.
