MATH 631: Abstract Algebra - Fall 2010

Announcements

Office hours on 12/14 will be held from 1:30-2:30 PM.

Each week's group homework coordinator needs to send me both the source files and the final output. Also, please note the changes to the individual homework instructions.

Students interested in producing lattice or commuting diagrams in LaTeX may want to check out the xy package.

Problem allocations for LaTeXing  for Assignment #13 are as follows, and are due 24 hours after the individual homeworks; This week's coordinator is in bold:

xxxxxxxx 10.2.6, 11.1.2, 13.1.1, 13.2.2.

xxxxxxxx 11.1.3, 11.2.4, 11.4.3, 13.2.1.

xxxxxxxx 11.1.9, 11.2.1, 13.1.3, 13.2.3.

xxxxxxxx 11.1.1, 11.1.8, 11.2.2, 11.3.2.

Weekly Problem Session

There will be a weekly problem session held Monday from 11:45-12:45 in the Chapman 101 conference room.

Homework Instructions

When individual homework is collected, many of the individual problems will be graded. A homework grade on a scale of 0 − 10 will be recorded for your assignment, reflecting my assessment of both the completeness and the correctness of the assignment. Late homeworks will not be accepted.
In addition, for each assignment each student will be assigned two or three problems (or so) chosen by your instructor, and will be responsible for drawing up a complete solution in LaTeX. Each week a different student will be in charge of overseeing that these problems are compiled together for submission. You will also receive an individual grade on your contribution to these solutions (0-10 pts); style as well as attention to detail will receive greater emphasis than on the individual assignments. 

Some more specific details:

Individual Homework Formatting Instructions

  • All homework must be submitted in ink, and double spaced. I encourage, but don't expect, you to LaTeX your assignments. When preparing individual homeworks with LaTeX, I strongly encourage you to use the provided template. This will make life much easier for the group homework coordinator!
  • Your name, class title and due date should appear in the top right hand corner of the first page.
  • Your assignment must be stapled together (not paperclipped, not crimped).
  • If your paper came from a spiral bound notebook, you must remove all the pokey out bits (the edges of the page should be straight and clean).
  • You must include a complete problem statement with each exercise.
  • You must write in complete sentences, with appropriate grammar, etc..

Group Homework Formatting Instructions

  • All homework must be submitted using the homework template provided.
  • Group homework assignments are due on the Thursday after the individual assignment is completed at 5 PM, and should be submitted by email.
  • You must include a complete problem statement with each exercise.
  • You must write in complete sentences, with appropriate grammar, etc..
  • Your language should be appropriately formal, e.g., the use of specialized symbols such as the inverted capital A in place of the words "for all" should generally be avoided. Look to your textbook for a model of when the use of such symbols or abbreviations is appropriate.
Failure to follow these instructions will result in deductions from your grade.
