INTRODUCTORY TOPOLOGY
FALL 2008
Assignments
Multiple-page homework must be STAPLED when handed in.
Note: In some problems you are asked to determine whether or not
something is true; you are expected to justify your answer. An affirmative
answer requires a proof; a negative answer is usually best supported by a
counterexample. Similarly, if you are asked to describe something, or any
similar question, the answer must be justified.

integers, and results about integers, given in our text or in class.
