Welcome to Math 19, Introduction to Set Theory.
There are no prerequisites for this course, other than a willingness to learn, and in particular, to learn how to write proofs. I do not expect you to be an expert proof writer at the beginning of the class.
Prof. Groszek's office hours are Monday 2:30-4:30, Thursday 1:20-3:20, Thursday 6:00-8:00, and by appointment. You may drop by anytime during scheduled office hours. However, during the second hour on Monday (3:30-4:30) and the first hour on Thursday (1:20-2:20), Math 8 students have priority. On the other hand, the evening hours on Thursday are only for Math 19, reading course, or independent study students.
Here is some
information about homework.
Here is the
handout on proofs that was distributed during the first x-hour. (Note, I do not plan to use every x-hour, but we are using the first two x-hours to work on proofs, and the third x-hour to make up for not meeting on MLK Day.)
Here is the current list of
assignments. This will be updated periodically.
