We can also schedule special meetings to talk about problems if enough people are interested.
"Textbook" Set Theory and Metric Spaces, Kaplansky (Chelsea Publishing)
The "textbook" will not actually be followed closely. Kaplansky's little book is a very nicely written "classic" and is a useful supplement to some of what we'll cover. Compared to most math books, it's quite cheap. The textbook will function primarily as supplementary reading. I will distribute textbook-like notes corresponding to the lectures each week. The notes will also be posted here as pdf files.
In Math 417, we will cover roughly the material corresponding to Chapters 1,4,5 and 6 in Kaplansky's book, as well as parts of Chapter 2. There will be a lot of additional material covered in class as well. All together, the course will comprise a substantial introduction to naive set theory (with more to come in Math 418), all the important material about metric spaces, and an introduction to the basic ideas about more general topological spaces. More substantial work in general topology comes in Math 418.
Exams There will be the equivalent of four exams in the course:
1) Exam 1 Tuesday, October 3 (in class)
2) Exam 2 Take-home, given out in class on Thursday, November 2 and due in class
Tuesday, November 7.
3) Exam 3 Final exam, on Wednesday, December 20, 1-3 pm
4) "Exam 4" See description under "Homework"
The "in-class" exam and the final will be "short-answer", consisting of such things as definitions, statements of theorems, giving examples/counterexamples, and true/false questions.
The “take-home" exam will consist of more substantial questions, analogous to homework problems.
Homework There will be 6-8 homework sets during the semester. Usually these will be distributed in class and be due in class three lectures later. Some of the homework problems are fairly routine, but many are quite challenging.
Most homework problems will be read by a grader.However, about 6 times during the semester, I will select a problem from your most recent homework (after it's handed in) and grade that problem myself.
Your total accumulated score on the homework problems I grade will count as "Exam 4". Your accumulated score on the remaining homework problems will count as your homework score.
Basis for Grading
The four exam scores and the homework score will each count about 20% of your grade. However, homework assignments are an essential part of the course. If a student neglects these, the course grade may be dramatically lowered (regardless of test scores) at my discretion. I will not have a scale for converting numeric scores into letter grades until the end of the semester.
During examinations "in class" and on take-home Exam 2, no discussion or consultation of any kind with any other person is permitted.
It is understood that on any take-home work (tests or homework) a student may consult class notes, the text, or any other references—provided the other references are explicitly documented. Generally speaking, you should avoid trying to "find" solutions to problems elsewhere. Any solutions taken from other sources without documentation will result in a grade of 0 for the test or assignment and might be cause for referral to the Academic Integrity Committee. If you have questions about what is appropriate, please ask me.
Students are encouraged to discuss homework assignments with each other; you should share questions and ideas. It is a powerful way to learn the concepts. Each student, however, must write up the homework solutions independently in his/her own words and notation. One handy way to avoid "borrowing too much" from sessions with others is to talk together but not take any written notes away from the conversation. Suspicious similarities between solution sets may be noted by the grader and may result in a grade of 0 for the homework.
The following web pages may be give some interesting historical sidelights on the material.
