**Math 239: Introduction to Mathematical Proof**

**Office Hours:**

All office hours will be held in my office, 326C South Hall. My office hours are at the following times, and by appointment.

**Mondays: 2:30-3:30pm**

**Wednesdays: 8:15-9:15am
** (Note: this office hour is primarily for Intro to Proof students)

I expect most special appointments to be close to exams, and I will advertise most special appointments to the whole class as an extra office hour.

Everyone can benefit from office hours, and in fact the best students come to them to ask deeper questions.

Feel free to drop by and just hang out, though it is best to come
with a list of questions. Its best to use your homework to figure
out what *types* of problems
you have trouble with and to isolate which *part *of
the problems are causing that trouble. When working on your
homework, I recommend (1) writing down the problems you don't
understand, (2) going back and looking for common characteristics of
these problems, (3) grouping them into problem types, (4)
re-attempting the problems with your newfound knowledge, and finally
(5) coming to me with well-thought out questions.

**Syllabus:**

**Homework:**

Most homework assignments will be in the form of readings (which you will be quizzed on) and problem sets. At the moment I am posting these on
Mycourses as announcements. Please contact me if you have trouble viewing these.
