Please carefully read the full course
Here is a fascinating chapter on the philosophy
of mathematical proof. For those who question what it really
And here are some comments about reading
in mathematics, how it is different, and why it is a skill to
learn and develop. Here is the first chapter of our book.
Here's my single favourite history
of mathematics web site. Look there for more information
about the history of anything in mathematics.
Here is our reading schedule for the
What about some notes on indexed sets? Here are some. (They were asked
for in the past, if you ask for something this semester, I will try
to put that, too)
Solutions to problem sets will appear here as they are
our work has finally begun … here are solutions to problem set one.
you for the work you do, here are solutions to problem set two.
and you will see, solutions to problem set three.
so quickly there is more, here are solutions to problem set four.
I know that you're
working hard to survive, here are solutions to problem set five.
(More will be added to this page as the semester progresses.
Please ask me if there is something you would like to see
Someone asked for some combinatorial proof
solutions from section 13. And so I quickly wrote some
Here's something I was wisely asked for: here are your E-Primes questions for PS7.
