Wonderful Topology Notes for Beginners

Recently found a wonderful topology notes, suitable for beginners at: http://mathcircle.berkeley.edu/archivedocs/2010_2011/lectures/1011lecturespdf/bmc_topology_manifolds.pdf

It starts by pondering the shape of the earth, then generalizes to other surfaces. It also has a nice section on Fundamental Polygons and cutting and gluing, which was what I was looking for at first.

I have backed up a copy on Mathtuition88.com, in case the original site goes down in the future: bmc_topology_manifolds
