I plan to cover the Introduction, Chapters 1-4
(without getting too technical in Chapter 3), and parts of
Chapters 6 and 7 (time permitting)
from the textbook. At the end of each class, I will assign the

There will be no exams.

expository paper on a topic of his or her choice related to the

responses to these questions. I as an instructor can also answer
questions, endorse student answers, and edit or delete any posted
Instead of emailing me math questions, I encourage you to
post them on Piazza.
Each student will be invited to join Piazza by email. Please join
it as soon as you can, as I plan to use Piazza extensively.
I expect you to abide by the University policy on
Regarding homework sets and take-home exams: you are
allowed to use the literature and even discuss the problems amongst
yourselves, but you have to write your own solutions.
