Due Wednesday, December 2nd

For Wed:

  • To Still Know:  Because of the Thanksgiving break, badges and proofs due dates are pushed back.  Here’s the remaining due dates:
      • Badges will be due Monday, November 30th and Friday, December 4th.
      • Proof Quizzes will be due Wednesday, December 2nd and Monday, December 7th.  They will both be on induction.
  • Last chance at ORAL EXAMS should be scheduled THIS WEEK (Tuesday and Thursday).  There’s no oral exam for Modular Arithmetic or Proofs III (no time left).  But you can do Functions and Relations badges this week.
  • The final exam will be take home and will be similar to badges quizzes and proof quizzes.  Some short answer questions will involve more than one badge at once.
  • Please know that online FCQs are open.  FCQs are used to evaluate your instructors for reappointment, promotion and tenure, and to inform the department about their teaching effectiveness.  I, personally, greatly appreciate feedback and work to improve my teaching using your feedback.
  • To Do:
    • Please take some time to fill in this feedback form on aspects of the course.  I list some of the design aspects of our course and ask whether they were helpful or problematic.  It’s a big help to me for designing for future students.  It’s anonymous.
    • Read Chapter 10, up to the end of 10.2 (end of page 186).  There are a bunch of proof examples, and please spend some careful time with each one to isolate the inductive structure for yourself.  Notice the differences in his style (from mine) and convince yourself they are only stylistic differences.
    • Hand in Exercise 2 from Chapter 10.
