MATH 412.1: Algebra II

(schedule number )

  • EXAM 2. Thursday April 19th, 7-9. Place: in our classroom.
  • The FINAL PROJECT is Here. There is much work to do. The last page of the exam has detailed info on what you can and can not do.
  • The complete results of exams 1 and 2 should be available Monday on moodle and in class.
  • Notes
  • The notes are now complete, i.e., they suffice for the Final project. Also, typos have been fixed.
  • The first role of the notes is to indicate how lectures differ from the book. Beyond this, I have tried to organize some of the material in a more clear way.
    Reading assignments: these are not checked. Optimally you should read the material before it is explained in class so that you are psychologically prepared.
  • EXAMS. There will be two midterm exams and a final exam or a final project.
  • In mathematics a clear explanation is called a proof and acquiring the logical structure of proofs is one of the basic goals of the algebra sequence.
