Most of the lecture notes have the same format: formula lines for the proofs but without the reasons for each step. Room is provided in the right-hand column for you to fill in with the reasons each step was taken. In this way you can concentrate on the flow of the proofs and the meaning of each formula and not worry about copying down each formula correctly for your notes.
