Math 406, Spring 2016: Class Announcements
Welcome to the class! Class announcements and useful documents will appear here. New material will be added at the top. Make it a habit to look here.
I'm going to try keeping the lecture notes and an indication of the current assignments at the top of the page: watch for other things that might appear below.
General Information and office hours: My office is Mathematics 240A. My office telephone number is 426-3011. I am teaching Math 187 and Math 406 in Spring 2018. My classes are M187 9--9:50 MWF, M406 10:30--11:45 WF. I have the regular weekly PBC meeting 2-3 Tuesday, logic seminar 3-4 Tuesday. I am proposing to have an office hour wih my prospective graduate student 2-3 PM Monday, class office hours MWF 3-4 pm and TTh 10-11 am. At other times MWF from about 8:30 am until about 5 pm I'm very possibly to be found in my office. TTh I do not know what my routine will be (but I will be in in the morning since I have declared office hours then).
The Lecture Notes from 2016 (and other tools)
Here are the lecture notes from 2016: we will transform them into "the lecture notes from 2018" as we go along. I am sure that there are some good note readers out there, who can catch typos and other slips...read, and find them (I give points if you find them before I do)!
Here is my Euclidean algorithm spreadsheet calculator.
Office Hours and Schedule
I am teaching Math 187, Discrete and Foundational Mathematics, MWF 9--9:50 am in Education Building 520 and Math 406, Advanced Number Theory, WF 10:30--11:45 in MB 139. I participate in the logic seminar, which will meet weekly at a time to be announced. I expect to be around most of the day
MWF and do not know what my routine will be like on TTh. I will post office hours in the first week or so.
- Friday, January 12: Homework 1, due Friday January 19th: do the exercises on page 9. The last one is a challenge problem, and you should not worry unduly if you are not successful at it. Do be sure you are looking at the updated version of the file: if it has an exercise about the div and mod operations, it is updated.
