Topology (2nd edition) by James Munkres (Available at Wheelock Books and also directly from the publisher)
There will be one midterm exam and a final exam. The exams are scheduled as follows:
|Midterm Exam||July 13, 2016||In-class and take-home|
|Final Exam||August 27, 2016||3-6pm (Room TBA)|
The course grade will be based upon the problem sets, midterm exam, and the final exam as follows:
If you must miss a class or exam for any reason, it is your responsibility to notify your instructor in advance, submit all homework on time, and to get notes from a classmate. Without prior arrangements, late problem sets will not be graded and missed exams cannot be made up.
On Problem Sets: Collaboration on problem solving is permitted and encouraged. This includes working toward a solution, asking for assistance, and helping with typesetting issues. However, it is a violation of the honor code to copy solutions or for someone else to provide solutions. Do not copy from any medium (e.g., blackboard, scrap of paper) on which a solution has been worked out. The submitted solution must be the individual's own writing.
On each problem, mention any collaborators, people who offered help, as well as outside resources consulted. Hints or suggestions from the instructor are specifically exempt from this policy. The grade assigned to the work will be unaffected by the number of resources used but it is important to give credit to all of them.
On Exams: Receiving assistance from any source (animate or inanimate), except the instructor or sources specifically named on the exam, is strictly prohibited. Similarly, giving assistance of any kind (directly or indirectly) is not allowed. Matters of clarification are left to the instructor and he should be consulted prior to any potential conflict.
Students with disabilities, "invisible" or not, enrolled in this course and who may need disability-related classroom accommodations are encouraged to meet with the instructor privately as early as possible in the term. Students requiring disability-related accommodations must register with the Student Accessibility Service office.
Once SAS has authorized accommodations, students must show the originally signed SAS Services and Consent Form and/or a letter on SAS letterhead to the instructor. As a first step, if students have questions about whether they qualify to receive accommodations, they should contact the SAS office. All inquiries and discussions about accommodations will remain confidential.
Some students may wish to take part in religious observances that occur during the academic term. Any religious observation that conflicts with participation in the course should be discussed with the instructor before the end of the second week of the term. If further support is required, please contact Nancy Vogele (Nancy.Vogele at dartmouth.edu).
