We're moving to Marano 306.
Go to the East side of the building -- that's the end near where our
old classroom was. On that end of the building only is there a 3rd
floor. Go on up!
Practice: Hand in at the beginning of class your answers to
problems 1-5 at the end of chapter 1.

I should have the Blackboard<-->Clickers set up running this week.

Practice: Complete problems 5 and 6 at the end of chapter 2.
Reading: Read chapter 4 of the book.
Practice: Do problems 1 and 4 of chapter 4. This is nine
proofs, but they are short, and a good block of practice will help
you become familiar and comfortable with direct derivations.
Reading: Read chapter 5 of the book.
Practice: Do problems 2a, 2b, 2d, 2e; and 3a, 3b, 3c, 3d;
of chapter 5.
Practice: I'll be out of town, but will email to you at
around 10:20 (and will try to post here also) a problem that should
only take about 55 minutes, and which will be due in the philosophy
department before 12:30 pm. The office is Marano 212. If no one is
there, write FOR DELANCEY on it and slip it under the door (the
office should open at 12.) You can work together but must
ultimately go off and write it up on your own.
