Answers are only accepted from registered students, through the Canvas upload system. The file type must be PDF, and the format specifications are very strict: each question must be solved on a different single page, and the page in position N must contain the solution to Question N, for each N=1,2,...,8. |

Registration Problems
MATH 320 is popular, and full. The instructor is forbidden by Math Department Policy from intervening in any student's registration. On the other hand, the Department has a page called Registration Issues describing what you can do to optimize your chances to secure a place before registration is locked down later this month. Please look there. Make your best case on the Advising Contact Form linked from that page, and submit it. |

Background in Logic
Here's a 4-page summary of the standard terminology and notation that we'll use throughout Math 320. It's all about definitions; there are no theorems or facts to know. I hope that most of this stuff is familiar, and that whatever you haven't seen before is clear enough for you to assimilate easily. |

Codes: RR = reading/reference; PP = practice problems (not to hand in); HW = homework problems (to be submitted); EXAM = midterm or final exam materials.
Details--Autumn 2023
Term scores will count for 50% of the final grade; the final exam will count for the other 50%. The final exam will last 2.5 hours, and be held at some time during UBC's formal examination period. The homework will be challenging and essential. Grades may be scaled due to the challenging nature of the course material.
