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.

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).
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.
Please take a gander at Past courses with notes, exams and links.
Essay (V3) had you label the vertices a dodecahedron. You may have found it convenient to print out the edge-graph of a dodecahedron for your vertex-label diagrams.
Available is a template, for folding-together a 3D-dodecahedron.
Our now-full-of-solns Zoidish Class-V mentions the Robert Long Prize essay competition, which is a Good-Thing-to-Do.

There will be a (possibly optional) SeLo Project, to be done individually. It will be due, slid u n d e r my office door (Little Hall 402, Northeast corner) , by 2PM, Thursday, 05Dec2019 The project must be carefully typed and carefully proofread.
For the typesetting, one possibility is the (free) mathematics-typesetting language . It can be learned in a week. (It is the archival 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 each day, so that you always have the latest version to
hand-in; this, in case your printer or computer fails.
