We will use Munkres' Topology, 2nd edition. I will assume you are
more or less familiar with the topics in Chapter 1.
We will cover Chapters 25 & 9, and maybe more if time permits.
Homework will be collected weekly, but you may be asked to
present some problems in class. There will be a midterm and
a final. The homework grade and each exam grade will count for
30% for your grade. A project will count for 10% of your grade.
The Final Exam is scheduled for Thursday, May 12, 12:502:50 p.m.
