Previous to that semester, I taught the course in the fall 2008 semester. Here is a link to a great deal of course material from that semester, including exams and review material (with solutions to most problems). I taught this course in spring 2006 with a different textbook but the order of the topics and the difficulty of the examples are much the same in both textbooks (the one used then and the one used in this course). So what's in this link is quite relevant. Again, there are old exams, review problems, solutions to most of the exam and review problems, a detailed diary, and other material. Less relevant but a bit more recent is material for an honors version of Math 251 which I taught in fall 2006. Here is a link to that material.
