General Announcements

- I will have office hours on Tues., Apr 21 and Wed., Apr. 22
from 11 - 12:30. You can also send me email with questions or to
set up an appointment.

- The final exam is on Apr. 23 at 2 pm in HH 305. It is
3 hours long.
The final exam will cover all the material covered in the course.
It
will be weighted 25% for material covered on the first test, 25% for
material on the second test and 50% for material covered since the
second test. Here are some practice problems for the material
since the last test: D&F, Chap. 9, #15, 16, 20, 21; Judson, Chap.
21, #6 - 8, 22.1, #1-8, 15, 16, 22, 23

- Here is a copy of the second test and here are the solutions.

- Here are some practice problems for the test: Judson, Chap.
20, #11, 14, Chap. 21, 1, 2, 4, 10, 12,
13, 15, 22, D&F, section 9.6, #3, 7, 17, pg. 910, 1 - 4 (for
these questions you will have to read the D&F appendix).
Regarding the Hilbert Basis Theorem, look at problems 1 and 2 a), b) of
Chapter 9 in D&F - note that they write LT(f) for what I have been
writing lt(f) and \delta(f) is the total degree of the leading term.

- The second test is Tuesday, Mar. 17 in-class. It will cover
all the material since the last test. Specifically, it will cover
the lecture notes and Chapter 20, Chapter 21, section 1 from Judson
(11.1, 13.1-2 from Dummit and Foote) together with the material on
cardinality, Zorn's Lemma (D&F appendix pg. 907) and the Hilbert Basis Theorem (D&F 9.6).

- The final exam will be Thursday, Apr. 23 at 2 pm in HH 305.

- Here is a copy of the test and here are the solutions.

- The first test is on Tuesday, Feb. 10 in class. It will
