Algebraic Topology by Allen Hatcher, Cambridge University Press (Required).

Description. Math 232B is the second quarter of the year-long algebraic topology sequence. It is an introduction to cohomology.

Grading. The plan is to cover Chapter 3 of Hatcher, including as many of the appendices as time allows. Homework assignments will be given. Your grade will be determined by attendance, participation, homework scores (including, possibly, some quizzes), and a final exam. The final will most likely be take-home. The weights of each of these are as follows.

  Homework/Etc.  Final   Participation
      34%         33%        33%

Make-ups: Make-ups for exams will only be given with documented University-approved excuses (see University Regulations).

ADA. Students with disabilities can get assistance from the Disabled Students Program Office (893-2668). I'm happy to work with them and with you.
