Doing Well in This Class
Although the prerequisites for the class are minimal, the material is dense and not trivial, especially if you have not seen mathematical proofs before. As is often the case in math courses, we will constantly build upon previous stuff; therefore, not leaving gaps in your understanding of the material is crucial for succeeding. This will require a sustained effort on your part, and in addition to attending lectures, you are encouraged to take advantage of instructor's office hours and the drop-in Math Learning Center. Of course, this is not a substitute for also working on your own; it is essential to think about the material, read the suggested texts, and solve homework problems by yourself. This last bit is a prerequisite to being able to solve problems under the pressure of an exam.
