Math 412 Elementary Number Theory (Fall 2017)
Your homework should be typed. It is not easy to write in mathematics, and by typing your homework, you can revise and improve your writing easily.
You are strongly suggested to use latex to type your homeworks. Latex is a programming language to type texts with math content. You need to use some text editor to compile your .tex file, then use a latex compiler to typyset your latex file. In windows, WinEdt is a good software to type and typeset your files. For Mac, MacTex (download it here) is good.
Here is a tutorial page for latex.
There are also some good online Tex compiler, for example sharelatex and overleaf, if you don't want to install the programs on your computer.
For beginners, it is easier to start by modifying other .tex files. Here a sample homework (.pdf, .tex) and its solution (.pdf, .tex).
Typed homework should be submitted through blackboard.wm.edu.
- Homework One (see blackboard.wm.edu for the files): Due 23:59pm Sept 8, 2016.
