Numbers and Polys Jigsaw puzzle

C'mon in! On my Teaching Page you will find useful information for students in all of my classes, as well as what to do in case of difficulties browsing/printing my webpages.

Question V4, in the below exam, asks for particular bijections H, beta, gamma, delta and epsilon. The Set theory Miscellany (pdf) pamphlet defines them, but does not prove that they ARE bijections.
The thrilling V-Home (pdf), is available for your thinking and writing pleasure. Remember that your WU must be carefully typed. The exam was due, slid u n d e r room 402 Little Hall my office door (Little Hall 402, Northeast corner) , no later than 10AM on Friday, 28Apr2006.

The astonishing U-Class (pdf) has been instantiated. Accept no substitutes! Get your copy today!

The fabulous T-Class (pdf) exists.

The wonderful S-Class (pdf) is available.

Our text is Numbers and Polynomials, Notes for a course, third edition, by Prof. Kermit Sigmon. The bottom of the first page should have "corrections November 2005".
You can purchase it the University Copy Center, 1620 West University Avenue. (Tel. 372-7436). It costs about $7. Alternatively, you can print-out copies of Sigmon's text (pdf) if you wish.

You will need two copies (it is absolutely ok to make photocopies) since you will need one pristine copy for exams, and one copy that you will write on for extensions of theorems.

Here is part of Numbers & Polys from Autumn 2002:
