I am teaching Math 187 and Math 275 in Fall 2018. My classes are M187 12--12:50 MWF, M275 9--10:15 MWF.
I am the coordinator for M488, the senior outcomes assessment activity, which meets once on a Saturday morning later in the semester in our computer lab Mathematics 136 (there will be two alternative dates TBA). I have the regular weekly PBC meeting at a time TBA, and logic seminar weekly at a time TBA. I am proposing to have time wih my graduate student 1-3 Thursdays, and class office hours MWF tentatively 10:30--11:30 pm and 3--4 pm. 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.
I will post solutions for Test I in the next day or two.
On Friday we are having a computer lab. Please bring your laptop computer and make sure some recent version of Python is installed on it. More information will appear here.
Your homework is the set of exercises on p. 14 of the manual of logical style, due next Friday. Happy Labor Day! (but I would start working on these proofs in the long weekend: questions will arise!)
From the axioms given on page 482, prove that x0 = 0. This can be done but is surprisingly tricky. You aren't going to lose points in the course if you can't do it.
This assignment is due on Friday the 24th. I won't always say when an assignment is due: the method of computing due dates is given above.
In addition, we define a natural number n as special just in case there is exactly one m strictly between 1 and n which is a factor of n. Compare with the definition of composite. Identify all the numbers between 1 and 50 which are special. Give a brief definition of special numbers in terms of familiar concepts.
Fall 2006 Test I. Here is the Spring 2012 Test I paper.Here is the Spring 2013 Test I paper with solutions. Here is the Fall 2013 Test I paper with solutions. Here is the Fall 2016 Test I paper with solutions. Here are the Fall 2017 Test I and II papers with solutions. These tests are rather different from yours; we were using a different book. There are some relevant questions in Test 1, and there are two formal proof questions in Test II. Here is the Spring 2018 Test I.
