Math 3200, Spring 2018

Class Schedule


All textbook sections come from the course textbook. Your homework sets also use many problems from that textbook.

  • However, the problem text will be recopied in homework assignments, so that people with old editions of the textbook can still do the problems.
  • For more details, consult the syllabus.


Expect this calendar to be updated most Mondays and Fridays.

  • At the end of each week, we will usually have an extra handout which can either show you more examples or can go through a detailed example more thoroughly.


Week 0:

  • Friday Jan 5: Section 1.1. Intro to course, basics of set notation


Extra handout of the week: None for the first day of class


HW 1, due Friday, January 12

  • Most assignments will be due on Mondays, but this assignment is different. (Monday January 15 is a holiday!)
  • ​Practice good style! Write most of your explanations in complete sentences, and lay out your work cleanly. It may be a good idea to try out a draft or two in office hours.
  • Partial solutions are put on eLC one class day after the due date, after any late homework submissions are dealt with. (See the syllabus policy on makeups.)

Week 1:

  • Monday Jan 8: Section 1.2. Subsets, power set.
  • Wednesday Jan 10: Sections 1.3 and 1.6. Venn diagrams, set operations, Cartesian product.
    • Groupwork for this class
      • You can look over the problems on the first page before class, but I recommend you save the answers for after class.
  • Friday Jan 12: Sections 2.1 through 2.3. Basic statements, truth tables, the connectives "not", "and", "or".


Extra handout of the week: Practice with sets, and a fun paradox


HW 2, due Monday January 22 (the week after the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday)

Week 2:

  • No class Monday Jan 15 (holiday)
  • Wednesday Jan 17: Sections 2.4 through 2.7. Implication, a bit about equivalent statements.
  • Friday Jan 19: Sections 2.8 through 2.10. Quantified statements, more practice with equivalences, negating complicated statements.


Extra handout of the week: Practice with logical words and symbols


HW 2 is listed above. HW 3 will be released next Monday (due the Monday after).
