We will generally have two kinds of class times.
One some days I will lecture, as is standard. On other days, class
time will essentially be a discussion time, building on "prework" which you must
turn in. The prework will generally have you read from Hatcher's book (or other
sources), have you answer some basic questions, solicit your questions
about areas you are not clear on, and have you do some straightforward problems.
I will go through all of your prework, prepare to answer questions which I see
there, and then we will use that as a starting point for a dialogue.
You must go to the coursework page to see all
assignments including prework. Prework
must be turned in by 10am before class.
There will also be regular homeworks, due roughly every two weeks. Since you will already be doing problems for prework, they might be slightly shorter than they would otherwise be. I will grade both prework and homework numerically and indicate areas which I see as incorrect, but I will not give comments or write many detailed solutions. Instead, you can ask during office hours, and I might schedule some evening sessions just to go over old problems. It is preferred that you use TeX (or perhaps Microsoft Word I suppose) for prework and homework.
