Course
info
The goal of this class is to develop proficiency with the basic problemsolving skills and the language and techniques used by modern mathematicians for
communicating complex
mathematical ideas.
Practical info (text, topics, grade breakdown) can be found here.
Announcements
 The Final exam (info) is on Friday, December 9 in 135 Mechanical
Engineering Bldg.
 Midterm exam 3 info.
 As mentioned in class, I will be on leave early November through Thanksgiving break. Professor A.J. Hildebrand will take over for me until I am back, here is a website for that portion of the class.

Homework Guidelines
Mathematics (and problem solving in general) is a collaborative
discipline. You are strongly encouraged to work and discuss together to
solve the homework problems. However, and this is important, you
must writeup the solution on
your own and it
must be
in your own words. Anything else is plagerism and will be treated as
such.
Your solution needs to be complete and correct (of
course!), but to recieve full credit your writeup should also meet the
following criteria.

All of the important logical steps in the proof should be present and fully explained.
 All assumptions should be clearly identified.
 Your writeup should be clear and concise. (I.e., if a sentence or
paragraph does not advance the reader's understanding of the solution,
it does not belong in the writeup.)
 Use full and complete English sentences. Symbols should be used
only as a tool to distill a complex mathematical relationship into
a readable format.
