    the week is Section 2 5 Section 3 1 and Section 3 2 We will finish up Chapter 2 by looking at some of the details of expressions and operators from Section 2 5 However there is a lot of detail there and we won t cover everything in class You should read the section carefully and use it as a reference when you need it We then move on to Chapter 3 which is about control structures We start with the while statement and basic if statement Section 3 2 introduces some basic ideas about how to develop algorithms Fourth Week February 11 13 and 15 We will continue talking about control structures this week The main ideas that we will cover are for loops using else if with if statements and using a break statement to end a loop The reading is Chapter 3 Section 3 Section 4 and Section 5 Fifth Week February 18 20 and 22 You should finish reading Chapter 3 There are a number of topics in that chapter that you are not responsible for such as the do while statement switch statement continue statement and any material on enums However that shouldn t stop you from reading about them The main new topic for the week will be exceptions and the try catch statement As an example we will look at how TextIO uses exceptions when you use it to read from a file The idea of using files with TextIO is from Section 2 4 5 so you will want to go back and read that section if you have not already done so Remember that there is a test coming up next Monday February 25 An information sheet about the test is available Sixth Week February 25 and 27 March 1 Posted late After the test on Monday we have moved on to Chapter 4 The reading is Sections 1 and 2 in that chapter We are starting a major new topic subroutines Seventh Week March 4 6 and 8 We will continue with Chapter 4 The reading for the week is Sections 4 3 4 4 and 4 5 We will be covering subroutines parameters the return statement and member variables Eighth Week March 11 13 and 15 We finish Chapter 4 this week with some last words about subroutines and member variables The reading is Section 4 6 and Section 4 7 but we will not do anything with the Mosaic example that takes up much of Section 4 6 I hope to begin Section 5 1 by the end of the week Note that at this point in the course I will mostly abandon the term subroutine and start using the near synonym method instead Next week is Spring Break Have fun and come back on March 25 ready to learn all about objects and object oriented programming Ninth Week March 25 27 and 29 We continue the study of objects and object oriented programming The reading for

4 00 4 30pm Journal Homework for class Thursday February 4 Add the answer to your question in your journal for Tuesday s or plan to come to an office hour if you haven t figured the answer out yet Continue working on the groupwork sheets from Tuesday s class Make sure exercises 11 13 on the first sheet make sense and or write down questions you have about them Also write a proof for problem 2 on the second worksheet and solve problem 3 We will spend a short time on this at the beginning of class and you should come to class with work to share with your group Each group will present something from the worksheet This work need not go in your journal but can stay on the worksheet or in your class notes Reread Sections 2 2 and 2 3 in the text This covers pages 26 44 There is a lot of information here Any new questions Does it make more sense now that we have spent a couple of days on 2 2 in class Recall that Prof belcastro recommends checking out Richard Hammack s book Book of Proof which is free online as a supplement Read in full or at least some of his chapter on Logic Then do the following exercises from his text Section 2 6 numbers 3 and 13 this is on page 51 of his text which is page 19 of the pdf and Section 2 10 numbers 1 2 4 and 8 this is on pages 60 61 of his text which are pages 28 29 of the pdf Put these in your journal Remember to include a question you have about the reading or something else relevant to class in your journal COLLABORATIVE Collected Homework Due Friday February 5 at 3 00pm Remember that although you may discuss this assignment with others your write up should be your own Be sure to note with whom you collaborate if you do Prove Let A B and X be sets If X subseteq A and X subseteq B then X subseteq A cap B Read Example 2 3 5 on page 38 of our text I claim that Prof belcastro makes an assumption in the example that is not proven in the text Prove it That is prove the following theorem bf Theorem Let A B and C be sets Then A cap B cup C A cap B cup A cap C In other words show that intersection distributes over union using an element argument Hint Reread Section 2 2 3 on page 29 of our text Note that there are two parts to a proof that proves two sets are equal much like there are two parts to a proof of a biconditional statement Complete problem 10 in Section 2 9 page 54 Your solution should include truth tables AND an explanation with full sentences describing how the truth table answers the question The explanation need not be long but must be complete WEEK 2 January 25 29 Remember to keep your appointments Note that due to introductory appointments with you all some of my open office hours are shortened this week The open hours for Monday are 1 30 2 30 If you cannot make these times and need to see me please

covers pages 14 20 Complete the Check Yourself problems at the end of Section 1 5 page 19 Complete problem 17 in Section 1 7 page 21 On page 18 Prof belcastro introduces existence proofs theorems that I referred to a couple of times in class on Thursday In your journal describe what they are and what makes them different from other proofs theorems Here is an existence theorem There exists an integer whose cube equals its square Try writing a nice proof of this theorem Remember to follow the journal guidelines in the syllabus including highlighting etc Work from the exercises mentioned above a vocabulary list and a question you have about the reading should be in your journal Be sure to leave some space after your question where you can put the answer once you figure out what that is You might be able to answer the question just from our work in class the next time or you might ask the question specifically during class or you might figure out the answer by coming to office hours to ask me INDIVIDUAL Collected Homework Due Tuesday January 26 at 4 00pm Remember that this assignment should be done on your own Of course you are welcome to ask me questions Prove or disprove The sum of three even numbers is even Remember Prof belcastro s first step Prove or disprove The sum of the squares of three consecutive integers is even Remember Prof belcastro s first step Keep your appointments If you haven t met with me and do not yet have an appointment email me ASAP with your schedule If you have met with me and forgot to bring your picture remember to bring one with you to class Journal Homework for class Thursday January 28 Review our work in Tuesday s class and continue working on the group work sheet Be ready to share your work with your groupmates especially on questions 1 4 In fact go directly to your groups when you get to class and start discussing You do not need to put this work in your journal you can keep it in your class notes Be sure

describing your procedure which should be visualized in a clear diagram Write up solutions to Mindscapes 10 if you need to add edges justify you have used the fewest possible 12 note that just putting arrows on your graph is not clear enough you need to write out the order in which you traverse the edges if you can and 20 this is about Eulerian paths at the end of Section 6 1 pages 397 398 Use

lots of theorems about different kinds of functions now To justify that a function is continuous or where a function is continuous utilize these theorems For example polynomials are continuous everywhere by Theorem 2 10 and the sine function is continuous everywhere since its domain is all real numbers and by Theorem 2 14 Thus f x sin 2x 3 15x 11 is continuous everywhere by Theorem 2 11 on the continuity of compositions of functions a What is the Intermediate Value Theorem Write down the statement of the theorem as part of your warm up exercises b Then draw a picture illustrating a function that satisfies the theorem c Lastly draw a function that does not What property is your second function missing Complete Section 3 1 Reading Assignment on this handout Homework due Wednesday
