Due Friday December 4th

  • Please know that online FCQs are open until Friday.  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.  Also, if you haven’t answered my own additional feedback form, please do!
  • The FINAL EXAM will be available for the entire exam period.  It will be take-home style, on canvas, due at 11:59 pm on the 13th.  This is a HARD DEADLINE.  Plan ahead!  Plan to complete it the day before the deadline if possible.  Upload a draft of whatever you have earlier in the day so that if you have internet troubles, you don’t lose the entire exam.  Email me before the deadline if you are having problems.
  • To Know:  On Friday, we will have some other professors from the mathematics department join the class to ask for some feedback on my teaching.  They will run a “classroom interview.”  I greatly appreciate your feedback, both positive and negative.  It goes into my file for future evaluation for promotion.
  • 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 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 (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.
  • For Fun:  20 proofs of Euler’s Formula! (The thing we proved in class:  V-E+F=2)
  • To Do:  Read section 10.2 of Hammack, and do Exercises Chapter 10, #10 to hand in.
