*The final project must be carefully typed*,
but diagrams may be hand-drawn.

For the typesetting, one possibility is the (free) mathematics-typesetting language . It can be learned in a week. (It is the archive language of the American Mathematical Society.)

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

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.

- "How To Write Proofs" (html), by Prof. Larry W. Cusick, [INTERMEDIATE]. Excellent. 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 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

Looking into the *Future*, here is part of
the **Spring 2014, SeLo**, page:

We had a test of prerequisites as well as four microquizzes during the semester.

The exams were:

- Team W-home and individual W-class.
- Team X-home and individual X-class.
- Finally, there was
an
*Optional*Individual project at semester's end.
