MAT 513 Problem Sets
Analysis for Teachers I
Spring 2018

There will be 10 weekly problem sets. Each problem set is
due at the beginning of lecture
on Wednesday. The lowest problem set score from the semester will be
dropped when computing final course grades.
Problems due one week will often practice material covered in
previous weeks. It is important to do the problems in a timely manner;
do not postpone problems until the last minute.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL LATE HOMEWORK BE ACCEPTED.
In exceptional circumstances, such as a documented medical absence,
etc., the instructor will excuse the missing problem set and compute the
problem set total using the remaining problem sets. Problem sets
missed because of workrelated absences will not be excused.
You are encouraged to work with other students in the class, but your
final writeup must be your own and must be based on your own
understanding. Moreover, writeups must be legible, must be written
in correct, understandable English, and must adhere to the usual
standards of rigor for an advanced mathematics course.
Writeups
which prove too difficult to read or understand may be marked
incorrect and / or may be returned to the student to be rewritten.
All questions regarding grading of a problem set should be addressed
to the instructor in a timely fashion.
Some of the problems are just for practice. It is a good idea
to know how to solve these problems; similar problems may appear on the exams.
PROBLEM SETS WILL BE POSTED ON THE BLACKBOARD PAGE FOR THE COURSE.
PLEASE ONLY WRITE UP AND TURN IN THE RED PROBLEMS.
