5/3
Final exam scores and course grades are available above. The high score
on the final was 99.

4/25
The grade reporter above will now also show your current average
(out of 100%), and compute what you need as a percentage on the
final exam to get various different grades in the course. Please
take this information with a grain of salt.
You have all of the raw
score information, and the method for computing grades (from the
syllabus). So, you can compute this information for yourself, and
should do so.
Additionally, it is a bad idea to become complacent if you are doing
well. Students often do worse on the final exam than they expect, so
if you shoot for an "easy" score, you may miss.

4/20
Both classes during the final week will be
devoted to questions/answers for the final exam. Bring questions.

4/18 The material for the final exam starts with the beginning
of the course (logic) and ends with section 5.1.
The next few lectures will continue with cardinality, with a focus more
on ideas than on giving samples of proofs.
The final day of class (Thursday 4/27) is
devoted to questions/answers for the final exam.

4/18 Here are solutions to Test 2.
In general scores were higher on test 2. The high score was 102, and the
median was 70.

4/11 The final assignment to be turned in is assigned today and
due in 1 week.

4/3 Class on Tuesday, 4/11 will be devoted to a question/answer
time for Test 2.

3/28 Test 2 is in just over 2 weeks. It will cover sections
4.24.4: relations, partial orderings, functions, and equivalence relations.

3/10 Here are solutions to Test 1.
Scores are available above. The scores are treated as if there was 100
points possible (so theoretically, one could get 102% on the test).
The high score was 100.

2/28 Class on Tuesday, Feb. 28, will be a question/answer
session for Test 1. Bring questions.

2/16 Test 1 will cover from the beginning of the course through
Section 4.1, i.e., the through the current homework.

2/6 It is possible office hours will start late on
Wed., Feb. 8 (I will be coming to campus from a doctor's appointment).

2/1 The School has various scholarships for students.
You can't win if you don't apply. See https://math.asu.edu/scholarships

1/23 My office hour on Wed, 1/25, is cancelled for a doctor's
appointment.
