Introduction to Sets and Logic

Basic Course Information

Classes for Section B of this course start September 7 and will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays 2:30-4:00 pm in CB 121 (Chemistry Building). To be covered in the course are chapters 1, 2 and parts of chapters 3, 4, 5 and 8 of the textbook (see below).

Evaluation will be based on
- 2 class tests each counting 25% toward your final grade, to be held in class October 5 and November 2,
- a final exam, to be held during the December exam period (date to be announced), counting 50%.

The final exam is scheduled for Sunday, December 17, 2-5pm in ACW 206.

For unofficial final grades, see below.

THE DEFERRED EXAM IS SCHEDULED FOR JANUARY 16, 2007, 2-5PM. PLEASE CONTACT ME IMMEDIATELY IF YOU MISSED WRITING THE FINAL EXAM AND IF YOU ARE APPLYING FOR DEFERRED STANDING.

The topics of the final exam are those of the two tests (see below), PLUS the following sections of Rosen's book (6th edition): 3.4-3.7, 4.1, 4.2 (skip comp. geometry, well-ordering), 4.3, 5.1, 5.3, 5.4. In the 5th edition you'll find these topics in 2.4-2.6, 3.1-3.3, 4.1, 4.3, 4.4.

There will be no make-up class tests. If you miss a test, you'll receive 0% on that test, unless you have a medical reason validated by an MD (doctor's note, to be presented within one week after the test missed), in which case the weight of the test missed will be added to the weight of the final.
