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).

- Folks found that
Class-Y (pdf),
was well-
*Suited*to their bijective knowledge. - Inspired by
Class-X (pdf),
the crowd cried
Give us more Zinc, Tin, Silver and Gold! —5 atoms; that's just not enough!

All this followed the nifty Home-X (pdf), which was due by noon, on Tuesday, 28Feb2012, slid completely under my office door. -
Example proofs for SeLo (pdf).
[Thursday, 15Mar].
Some examples of computer-generated Lmino tilings (txt).

- The magical
Home-W (pdf)
challenged your team's gray-cells with modular arithmetic.
The take-home was due at
BoC, on Monday, 06Feb2012.
It nicely foreshadowed the
Class-W (pdf),
eliciting shouts of enthusiam. Admirers remarked on its minimalistic
two-tone
format, and the similarity of the questions to the take-home and the
*Induction pamphlet*that everyone printed-out and wrote all over. - Available are all the quizzes so far (pdf); [23Apr2012]. For future microquiz problem-types, see the webpages of the two previous incarnations of my SeLos.
- Does Zero = One? (pdf).
Here are some
~~proofs~~*poofs*to post about... - The Math-Greek alphabet (pdf) was on the sample prereq (pdf), and on the Actual prereq (pdf).
- Voila: A printable SeLo syllabus. Here is our schedule.

- "How To Write Proofs" (html), by Prof. Larry W. Cusick, [INTERMEDIATE]. Examples mostly from Elem. Number Theory; some from Calculus.
- Prof. Christopher Heil's page (pdf) [4 pages, INTRO]. A well written survey of the structure of proofs. Has one example of induction (recursion).
- “How to write proofs: a quick guide” by Prof. Eugenia Cheng (pdf)
[17 pages, INTRO].
Good, friendly. She is stricter than I in the ordering of steps in a proof.
Conversely, her write-up is lax in places where I am strict:
- Always use a
*word/phrase*, and never a comma, forthen

; e.gthen

ornecessarily

orwe discover to our delight that

. - She has proof snippets in her examples, but remember
that
*your*proofs must be written as a sequence of complete, grammatical sentences, correctly punctuated, structured into coherent paragraphs.

- Always use a

Please follow the guidelines on the

Please take a gander at Past courses with notes, exams and links.

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 responsibleto get all Notes / Announcements / TheWholeNineYards from a classmate, or several. All my classes have a substantial class-participation grade.

Our textbook is
How to prove it,
(**Second** Edition).
