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

**At all times** have a **paper copy** you can hand-in; I do
** NOT** accept
electronic versions.
Print out a copy

My dog ate my homework.)

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

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
*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).

- Voila! a proof of the Eisenstein Irreducibility Criterion (pdf).
- An intro to the Chromatic polynomial of a graph (pdf); a graphical example of deletion-contraction.
- All in one convenient location:
The 10 (and
*Bonus*) Comb quizzes so far (pdf). [Thurs. 30Nov2017] - Students were
**shocked!**by the*Graphic*Language of Class-C. [The posted version has solns to the short-answer questions.] -
Can you solve some
Coming Attractions
`(pdf)`? - A std proof of the
Inclusion-Exclusion principle (pdf).
Some
Putnam competition
*Problems*using inclusion-exclusion, e.g B3.2009 (soln). -
Following the well-received
Home-B,
[due
*BoC, Monday, 16Oct2017*] was a Stirling Example of an in-class exam; the much beloved Class-B. - Neil Sloane's On-line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences (OEIS).
- Home-A
was due
*BoC, Wedn., 27Sep2017*. The eagerly anticipated Class-A [on Friday, 29Sep2017] was greeted with exclamations of Joy and cries ofDude, it's like --totally-- Binomialistic!

- Our Comb 2017t syllabus [updated 23Sep2017, due to hurricane Irma, and some LaTeX typesetting problems] has exam/microquiz info.
- What fun! Computer-generated pictures of Lmino Tilings (txt), illustrating a geometric induction-argument.
- Please learn the Math-Greek alphabet (pdf), which we will use in class frequently.
- Please verify that you can easily do all the problems on High-school & Calc 1 knowledge review exam.
