Combinatorics I Combo

(Nostalgic?, see the 1994-1995 pages.)

Our Teaching Page has useful information for students in all of my classes. It has my schedule, LOR guidelines, and Usually Useful Pamphlets. One of them is the ChecklistThe checklist (pdf) which gives pointers on what I consider to be good mathematical writing. Further information is at our class-archive URL (I email this private URL directly to students).

End-of-semester project

There will be not be a final exam .   Here is the thought-provoking end-of-semester Project-E (pdf), to be done individually. The project is be due, slid u n d e r room 402 Little Hall my office door (Little Hall 402, Northeast corner) , no later than noon, Friday, 07Dec2012.

The final project must be carefully typed. I recommend learning the free mathematics-typesetting language LaTeX. (It is the archive language of the American Mathematical Society.) It can be learned in a week. It is very good for typesetting homework.


At all times have a paper copy you can hand-in; I do NOT accept electronic versions. Print out a copy each day, so that you always have the latest version to hand-in; this, in case your printer or computer fails. (You are too old for My dog ate my homework.)

Please follow the guidelines on the Checklist Checklist (pdf, 3pages) to earn full credit.


Our textbook is A Walk Through Combinatorics (3rd edition).
Author: Miklos Bona Year: 2011
ISBN: 9789814335232 Publisher: World Scientific Publishing
The book is   QA164 .B66 2002   at Marston. A link to this book at The Publisher's site.

There was a test of prerequisite knowledge Friday, 24Aug2012. The Prereq encouraged students to self-evaluate if they should be in the course. The mini-test will count for 4%—8% of course grade.

The mini-test selected some topics from your Calc knowledge (Integration by parts, Intermediate-Value Thm and Mean-VT. Chain rule, etc.), High-school knowledge (formula for a line between two points, the Quadratic Formula, intersecting a line with a parabola, etc.),

It also asked you to know the Math-Greek alphabet (pdf), which we will use in class frequently.

Here is a sample test (pdf) which was much longer than the actual prereq.

Combinatorics II Combo 2

Greetings. This is a continuation of my Combinatorics 1 (above).

Quantifiers and (“for all”  and  “there exists”) are like nitroglycerin, in that one little mis-step leads to the whole thing blowing up in your face.

There is no partial credit when it comes to Explosives and Quantifiers.

(Optional) End-of-2nd-semester project

There is no final exam .   Here is the thought-provoking end-of-semester Project-H (pdf), to be done individually. The optional project is be due, slid u n d e r room 402 Little Hall my office door (Little Hall 402, Northeast corner) , no later than 3PM, Tuesday, 23Apr2013.

The final project must be carefully typed. I recommend learning the free mathematics-typesetting language LaTeX. (It is the archive language of the American Mathematical Society.) It can be learned in a week. It is very good for typesetting homework.


At all times have a paper copy you can hand-in; I do NOT accept electronic versions. Print out a copy each day, so that you always have the latest version to hand-in; this, in case your printer or computer fails. (You are too old for My dog ate my homework.)

In all of my courses, attendance is absolutely required (excepting illness and religious holidays). In the unfortunate event that you miss a class, you are responsible to get all Notes / Announcements / TheWholeNineYards from a classmate, or several. All my classes have a substantial class-participation grade.


Our Combinatorics 2 Syllabus (txt) is available. We also have a course-archive at a private URL, only for the use of the students in our class.
