No hard copies of the homework will be distributed. Please check my web page for the latest assignments. Usually you have one week to do the homework. The answer will be put on my web page after the homework is collected. Absolutely no late homework will be accepted.
The homework is collected in the tutorial sessions, not by me. It will be graded and handed back to you by the tutor in the next tutorial session.
Exam and Grade
There will be one midterm and one final exam, accounting for 30% and 50% respectively of the final grade. The homework is counted as 20% of the final grade.
The syllabus is subject to change as circumstances arise.
As my usual practice, I try to make the homework as light as possible. However, doing homework alone is definitely not sufficient for really understanding topology. You should do as many additional problems as possible.
