e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org WWW (web page): http://math.boisestate.edu/~holmesI read my e-mail constantly and respond promptly. An electronic version of the syllabus, which will include homework assignments, will be accessible from my web page. The electronic version is the official syllabus, and any changes will be posted there and not distributed on paper.
This schedule is subject to change (even radical change); you should look at it on the web before studying a section.
Assignment I distributed (handout)
Assignment I handout due.
Assignment II handout distributed.
As I said in class on Friday, more discussion of 3.6 as well.

Assignment III handout due.

Assignment V handout distributed; due on the 9th, but note that Assignment VI will be distributed later this week.
Assignment VI (and Assignment IV makeup) assigned.
Assignment V due.
Assignment VI (and any Assignment IV makeup done) are due.
Assignment VII available in Postscript and PDF format. It will be distributed on paper on Friday, and due on Tuesday. I announced that rewrites of Assignment V proofs will be accepted for limited credit until the Assignment VII due date.
We are still just one day behind, since I allowed a whole day for 5.3 in the schedule.
Assignment VII distributed on paper. See links above to get it from web. Due Friday, February 20 (not Tuesday as I originally wrote!)
PLEASE READ: A correction: in Assignment VII, problem 1, you may assume that 0 is a natural number. Otherwise the given statement is false for 10! By the way, I will award extra credit points (as I did in this case) for any student who brings an error in the handouts to my attention before I post a correction on the web (but usually only to the first student to do so)!
We are still one day behind schedule (so we did 5.4 today).
We are one day behind: we did 6.3, 6.4 and some discussion of counting problems in general.
Assignment VIII distributed.
Assignment VII due.
Rewrites of Assignment V proofs accepted for limited credit up to today. Be sure to hand in the original Assignment V paper with any rewrites.
We are a day and a half behind (I'm in section 7.2 and 7.3 and will continue tomorrow). There are extra notes for today in the handout directory; I'm in a hurry as I write this and can't supply a special link (look on my home page for the handout directory link).
Assignment VIII due.
We are now on schedule!
Assignment IX distributed, due Monday, March 8 (not "Monday, March 5"!) Please be aware that Assignment X may be distributed before Assignment IX is due, so don't put it off! The assignment handout is available in the handout directory as usual.
I encourage students to look for typos and unfortunate statements in handouts; get extra credit points to add straight onto your homework average!
Assignment IX due.
We are currently one day behind (we did 9.1 today). I will post full notes on the mod 5 arithmetic example.
Delinquent Assignment IX papers accepted without penalty up to this morning in class; graded assignment IX papers returned today. Assignment X extended to Monday.
Note that we actually covered 9.7 on Tuesday, though I will say a few more words about it today. We covered part of section 10.1 today.
We actually did section 10.3 today.
We actually did sections 10.4 and 10.5 today.
Assignment XI due.
Assignment XII distributed; it is due next Monday after the test.
We actually did section 10.6 today.
I'll defer collecting assignment XII for one day, since I don't have assignment XIII ready. I'm planning to cover section 11.1.
Assignment XIII distributed. Note that only the problems from section 10.7 are homework; the attached counting problems are study problems, some or all of which will be done in class. Full solutions for the counting problems will be available eventually.
No new section covered; we looked at counting problems from the sheet.
I'm planning to do more counting problems from the sheet and talk about section 11.2.
Assignment XIII due.
Assignment XIV distributed. It is due April 21.
We are actually reading section 15.3 today.
Assignment XIV due.
Assignment XV distributed. It's in the handout directory on the web as well.
Assignment XV due.
Test 4 review document is posted here in Postscript and PDF format. Please notice that the review covers both counting and graph theory, but most of the sample problems in graph theory involve hand drawings and so do not appear in the web version (you'll need to get it in class or from me directly).
Test IV covers sections 10.6-11.4, 15.1-16.1.
