**Course
Description:** The purpose of this course is

to serve as a transition between
calculation-oriented courses

like calculus and differential equations and more
theoretical

courses like analysis and abstract algebra. Math 310
covers

logic, set theory, proofs, number systems, axiomatics, and

other aspects of mathematical rigor. Group theory,

non-Euclidean geometry, and basic real analysis

are offered as illustrations of the ideas in the course..

**Textbook:**

**Elements
of the Course:**

Homework: 25% of grade

Midterm Exam: (2 of these) each 25% of grade

The homework is an essential part of this course.
Each new idea

builds
on previous ideas, so it is essential to master and internalize each

one
when you encounter it. Be sure to do the homework in a regular and timely

fashion. Homework should
be written out on 8.5" x 11" paper and submitted

on time. It will be graded. We will
use the CrowdMark system for submitting

homework. What you will
do then is scan your homework and submit it OnLine.

When a homework assignemnt is formulated,
CrowdMark will let you know

and tell you how to submit..

Be familiar with this Web page. This is where homework assignments will be

posted, homework

solutions posted, exam solutions posted, due dates will be posted,

and also where exams and other course events
and information

will be announced.

We will decide when our midterm exams will be.

If there are particular days when you do not want an exam (for a religious

holiday or other reason), please let me know.
