**Text:** Introduction to Toppology by Gamelin and Greene.

**Topics:** The goal is to cover most of the first three chapters
of the textbook,
including metric spaces, continuity, compactness, topological spaces,
and fundamental groups.
If we have time,
we will also cover the
classification of surfaces,
and the Euler characteristic.

**Grading:**
There will be exams and homework.

**Add codes:** I do not have any! Talk to the people at the math office
on the sixth floor of South Hall about his and other enrollment issues.
