Hello everyone. Tomorrow I will be working on the document I mentioned in my previous post: an overview of all the material that will appear on the MATH 245 midterm. This document will differ from my notes, in that as I said it will be conversational and highly conceptual. That is, I will be omitting as much explicit computation as possible, focusing instead on the main ideas behind the theory.
Anyways, the main purpose of this post is to ask a question. To anyone currently in MATH 245 who might be reading this: if you have something to contribute, please leave a comment on this post! Currently I’m looking primarily for someone else to give an explanation of a solution to questions 3 and 5 on the first assignment (I’ve included the link for anyone outside the class that is interested). If you have anything else to say that might be insightful or helpful, also feel free to do so.
Of course, do not feel that in order to contribute you must go through the tedious work of typing up something formally and so on; you can just post an informal comment on this post. I’ll read it, and include an adapted version in the document (giving credit to you, of course).
The first version of the document should be posted by tomorrow night (this will include at least all of my own efforts), although if any contributions come in from now until Monday, I will revise the document and include them.
It will appear both on this blog and on the front page of dx7hymcxnpq.com.
Thanks a lot, and good luck to everyone.
