Below are copies of slides used in lectures. They don't contain the hand-written notes from class, or the plastic slides used additionally on the overhead projector. If you print them, please use the options "4 pages on 1" and "double-sided".
For some classes, an annotated version is available. These includes the scribbling that were done in class on the tablet, but not on the white board. The might be useful for reference, but I wouldn't bother printing them.
