Combinatorics Hall of Fame: (1st semester)
GRADING: Course grades will be based on a series of written
Each assignment is generally due one week after completion of
the material of a chapter, unless otherwise indicated.
are expected to be complete, including a statement of the problem
being addressed, as well as the solution. Solutions should be written
to the best ability of the student at all times.
Writting style is considered important and suggestions for
improvement will be made whenever deemed necessary.
The Course: The course assumes no previous knowledge
Thus, we build from basics. Background in linear algebra and
algebra is useful. This semester the emphasis is on enumeration,
but some important combinatorial structures will be introduced.
