Overview 

The main goal of this course is to introduce you to some of some topics in algebraic combinatorics.
"Mathematics is not for spectators; in order to gain in understanding, confidence, and enthusiasm one has to participate." M.A. Armstrong
Textbooks 

No Text Required
Of course, I invite you to visit the mathematics library (located in the second floor of Bradley Hall) and become acquainted with as many combinatorics books as you wish.

Homework Policy and Guidelines 

Homework will be assigned at the end of each period and will be due by the next period, unless otherwise indicated.

The Honor Principle 

On Exams: You should work the problems on your own.
On Homework: Collaboration is permitted and encouraged, but NO COPYING . In other words, you should feel free to talk to other students while you are in the process of thinking about a problem. However, when it comes time to write up your solutions, you should do this by yourself without outside assistance.
Disabilities 

Students with disabilities who will be taking this course and may need disabilityrelated classroom accommodations are encouraged to make an appointment to see their instructor as soon as possible, certainly within the first two weeks of the course. Also, they should stop by the Academic Skills Center in Collis Center to register for support services.
