22 Nov  Tues 
Begin working on the exercises on compactness.

17 Nov  Thur 
Test 2 study guide

10 Nov  Thur 
Exercises on Homeomorphisms and
Connectedness.
Take a look at the study guide under next week's test date. Note
we will cover new material on Tuesday.

3 Nov  Thur 
Begin working on
Exercises on Homeomorphisms and Connectedness

1 Nov  Tues 
Review material
Continue working on the final project
Read about the Zariski topology from the
last exercise set, including the last paragraph.

27 Oct  Thur 
Exercises on Closed, Continuity, and
Hausdorff

25 Oct  Tues 
Review continuity notes and bring your iclicker to class
Continue working on homework for Thursday.

20 Oct  Thur 
Begin working on the exercises for next week.
If you did not complete Tuesday's homework, be sure that you do so.

18 Oct  Tues 
Search for references related to the history of your final project topic [approved firstcome, firstserved
as a message on ASULearn by clicking on Participants/My Name/Send Message]
in the library and the web, including:
Handbook of the history of general topology by Charles E. Aull, R. Lowen, 1997 QA611.A3 H36 1997 (multivolume works)
Look through these to check for history of your topic, and look at the nearby books too.
Also search the print copies of the Historia Mathematica journals (Bound: v.3(1976)v.31(2004) (Lower Mezzanine))
Message me on ASULearn what you find.
Correct your test mistakes  be prepared to turn this in and/or to
present this orally if called upon.

11 Oct  Tues 
On a doublesided sheet of paper to turn in, write up a review containing all of the topology definitions, examples, and statements of results that we covered in class. Shorthand abbreviations, keywords, pictures, creative ways of conveying the ideas are fine as long as you understand them.
Work on choosing a topic for the final project [firstcome, firstserved
as a message on ASULearn by clicking on Participants/My Name/Send Message]

6 Oct  Thur 
Read through the final project and
write down any questions
Review the concepts of closed and continuity

4 Oct  Tues 
Test 1 study guide. Dr. Searcy will proctor
the test, but she won't be able to answer any questions.

27 Sep  Tues 
Look at the study guide for test 1 and write down any questions
Each person in the class will choose a different proof from class or the previous exercise sets  message me your choice on ASULearn to obtain approval and I will list them here. In LaTeX, type up your proof. Turn in your source code as well as your compiled version, which must distinguish your proof as your own. The purpose of this assignment is to revisit some of the previous proofs in order to improve them and your understanding of them, and also to try
LaTeX.

share what you read about, including related definitions and theorems
(but not the proofs).
In addition, reflect on the similarities and differences.

If you have your notes from MAT 2110 or 2510, then review the set
theory material from there. Summarize what was covered and be prepared to
share it.
Read through the
ProofWriting Rubric which is what I
use in grading proofs
Set Theory Exercises 2

25 Aug  Thur 
Read through the Syllabus
which is online  search google for
Dr. Sarah, click on my page, and click on the MAT 4710/5710 link and then the
Syllabus link. Message me any questions on ASULearn 
 the university considers this a binding contract.
