Math 6520 - Introduction to Algebraic
Topology

Spring 2008

FINAL

You can either take the final on Wednesday from 10:30 - 12:00 in JWB 308 or take it on your own. If you take it on your own you should do it an hour and a half and the exam should be in my mailbox by 5PM on Sunday, May 4.

Meeting place and time: MWF 10:45 - 11:35, JWB 333

Text: Algebraic Topology, by Hatcher

Course description: This will be a standard graduate course in algebraic topology. I plan to cover the first three chapters of the books (omitting some topics). Hopefully there will be some time at the end to begin chapter 4.

Homework: There will be regularly assigned homework some of which I will grade.

Final: The final will be a replica of the algebraic topology half of the prelim.
