Additional Resources:
Grading:
Examinations: There will be two prelims and a final, some in class others Take-Home.
Homework: There will usually be one problem
set each week due on Fridays. You may work alone or in groups on the homework,
and we will answer your questions, but the solutions you hand in
should be your own write-up. From each problem
set, a small number of problems chosen by the TA for careful
grading. No late homework will be accepted. Your homework is a document that
another person has to read. TA's are not obliged to grade unreasonably messy
or unstapled papers!
Warmup for Class: Each class will be preceded by a warmup assignment to be completed before class, and uploaded to the balckboard web site. it will usually consist of a reading assignment and exercises relevant to the material to be covered.
Prerequisites: MATH 2210-2220, 2230-2240, or 1920 and 2940. Basic knowledge of groups, rings and fields, basic topology and manifolds is very helpful. You will have the opportunity to catch up on the more advanced material.
Academic Integrity: Each student in this course is expected to abide by the Cornell University Code of Academic Integrity. In this course, as stated above, students may work in groups on the homework, but the solutions you hand in should be your own write-up.
