Complete these tasks before our first class: FINALIZED

* Watch this video: Welcome! I recorded this video last spring, and our first day of class is February 2, but the rest is still accurate.

* Read the Carthage Mask Policy

* Watch this video on mathematical word processing.

2/2: In-person instruction today! - FINALIZED

Written exercises should be typed and turned in via email or in person before the beginning of class on the indicated date. Of course, there is nothing to turn in for reading assignments, but there will be a quiz or writing assignment over that material. **Read the notes for insights into style
and word choice. Exercises with a (T) to the left of the number may be written in two-column format as described in class.** Exercise without a (T) need to be written in paragraph format as demonstrated in the notes.

You are welcome and encouraged to stop by my office for help on the homework, either in person or via Zoom. However, you may not ask questions over homework on the day that the assignment is due. I also will not "pre-grade" your homework to see if your proofs are correct.

Do NOT assume that any assignment beyond today's is correct! I often change them the day of class. Look for the word FINALIZED next to an assignment to know when you can begin watching the videos. If you take a quiz before the lesson is finalized, you may need to take it again if I change the questions.

The Homework assigned today is due 2/7.

Homework

No scratch work should be on the page. Sentences start with words (and capital letters), not mathematical symbols, variables, or numbers. Sentences also end with periods, question marks, or exclamation points. It's not appropriate to use mathematical symbols as verbs (although an occasional \(\Rightarrow\) in a sequence of computations is OK), and abbreviations really aren't appropriate either. I expect good, polished writing. Yes, this may mean re-copying your work. Use pencil so you can erase; scribbling out words you don't like is not appropriate. Missing punctuation really does matter!

(7) Cantor's Theorem

Optional Material

* A somewhat-less-friendly reminder: You should all know that your proofs must contain complete sentences, not just phrases and random thoughts. No scratch work should be on the page. Sentences start with words (and capital letters), not mathematical symbols, variables, or numbers. Sentences also end with periods, question marks, or exclamation points. It's not appropriate to use mathematical symbols as verbs (although an occasional \(\Rightarrow\) in a sequence of computations is OK, as long as you could replace the symbol with the phrase "which implies" and the sentence makes sense), and abbreviations really aren't appropriate either. I expect good, polished writing. Yes, this may mean re-copying your work. Also, you really don't want to assume what you're trying to prove! That can result in an immediate 1 out of 5. **If you have any missing homework assignments or numerous blank problems on assignments you did turn in **, I recommend re-reading the bold statement on page xi of the notes.
