Welcome to the class forum

Welcome to this class forum!

It runs in conjunction with this course website. More permanent and systematic information is placed on website, while forum is for discussion. Please read before registering!


* You can select any username (login) you want (take a rather short one). Username is what only you (and Admin) can see.
* However  change your (screen) Name  (the one which everybody sees) to one easily identifiable (Admin should be able to identify you with a student enrolled to this course--and matching BlackBoard name; otherwise your posting privileges could be reduced or revoked):  Open Profile > Account Settings and look for "Name".
* It would be preferable to use your University of Toronto email address.
* BTW you can have a cool avatar too. Please do not display any confidential info.
* You cannot change the loginname (used for login).  But there is no need.  Nobody except you knows your password - even Admins - but Admins don't need  to know it.
Some forum rules

* Please use different boards according to their description (I will create new ones if needed).
* Do not hijack topics: if the topic is devoted to some question, do not post anything which is not related. Start a new topic.
* On the other hand, do not start new topic answering to the existing post; use the same topic.
* Do not put in the same post several not related things - make several posts instead (in different topics).
* Do not post solution which coincides with the solution already posted by someone else; exception: typed solution beats the scanned one.
* Read and search before postings.
* Use common sense.

* Useful posts are rewarded by Karma which later translates to Bonus points (in the final mark).
* Further, your posts and active participation in the class will be a decisive factor if you ask me for a recommendation letter for a Graduate School. To write such letter I need to know something about you beyond your marks (and your final mark is in the transcript anyway). Participation in the forum automatically leaves a trace.
Have questions?

* If you have a question which you think is of general interest--ask it here rather than via email.


* Both this forum and website use MathJax to display mathematics.


* Blackboard will be used only for marks, occasionally for copies of  the important announcements and emails.
