Math 147: Topology

Spring 2011

RULE of THUMB: Try to stay 5 theorems ahead of where we ended the previous class.
HW assignments
due weekly on Thursdays in class .
You should be writing up all the theorems you prove, but the ones below are ones you will hand in.
Write these up carefully! Full credit only awarded for elegant and well-written solutions.

(By the way, if you've seen a proof in class that you like better than your own, feel free to write that one up for the HW. Just remember to justify the details carefully.)

[ To help the grader, please box or circle the theorems that are to be graded.]

HW #1 (due Thu. 1/27): HAND IN Theorems 5, 6, 7, 9.
HW #2 (due Thu. 2/3): HAND IN Theorems 10, 13, 14, 18, 19.

HW #3 (due Thu. 2/10): HAND IN Theorems 21, 23, 25, 27, 29, and Theorem 3 from our supplement on Interior and Boundary.

HW #4 (due Thu. 2/17): HAND IN Theorem 31, 34, 36, 37[i=>ii only], 40.
Be sure to be keeping up with your notebooks; I'll ask you to hand them in the following week (as part of HW #5).

HW #5 (due Thu. 2/24): HAND IN Theorems 41, 46, 48, and and hand in your NOTEBOOKS for evaluation! (The notebooks will go to me, and the assignment to the grader.)

    I will look over the notebooks and evaluate them based on the following criteria: content [10 pts] and organization [10 pts]. The folder should be made in such a way that, in 10 years, you can pull it off your shelf and understand what you did in class! For more details on my grading rubric:

    10 pts = all theorems are written out carefully.
    7-9 pts = all theorems written out or sketched
    6 pts or less = various kinds of incompleteness

    10 pts = folder neatly organized, with notes, theorems, HW's separated by sections, and the Progress Sheet on top (with a completely updated list of theorems presented, proved, learned in class, etc.)
    7-9 pts = less neatly organized
    6 pts or less = sections missing, folder not neat

HW #6 (due Thu. 3/3): HAND IN Theorems 52, 54, 55, 56, 59.
HW #7 (due Thu. 3/10): HAND IN Theorems 60, 62, 63, 64, 65.
Spring Break: No HW over break. Use the time to tidy up your notebooks!
HW #8 (due Thu. 3/31): HAND IN Theorem 69, 70(d)=>(a), 70(c)=>(d), 75, 77.
HW #9 (due Thu. 4/7): HAND IN Theorems 82, 83, 86, 89 and a copy of your PROGRESS SHEET (directly to me).
HW #10 (due Thu. 4/14): HAND IN Theorems 90, 93, 94, 96, 99, and tidy up your notebooks!
HW #11 (due Thu. 4/21): HAND IN Theorems 101, 105, 107, 109, 110 and tidy up your notebooks!
HW #12 (due Thu. 4/28): HAND IN your notebooks, paying attention to the notebook guidelines above.
Final exams (take-home) ready on April 28.
