Google group:The Google group for this class is MATH-225-01-SP17. You should check that you have been automatically added to this group. If you have not, please add yourself. The group will contain posts with various important announcements, materials, and information about the course. You can also ask questions, have discussions, or arrange study groups through the group. I will be checking the messages posted to it regularly.  You can access the group via the link on the left.
Textbook (required):    Applied Combinatorics, by A. Tucker, 6th edition, 2012.
The link above leads to Amazon, but you can of course purchase the book from anywhere and in any format, as long as you have the right edition (6th).  I would advise you against buying the book at the Wellesley Bookstore since the prices there are generally considerably greater than elsewhere.
 Some additional reading materials supplementing the lectures can be found on the reading materials and handouts page.
