--Today in class, we ended up having a review of the class
up to the present day. This was not planned to take the entire class, but
I think it was very useful.
-In the next class (number 14) we will have an essay exam.
Pick eight (8) questions from the review material ("Concepts and
Questions for Study") from amongst questions whch you did NOT work on
answering in your study group. Make half of these "social" and/or
biographical questions, and the other four "technical" questions.
Email me the list.
I will tell you at the time of the essay quiz which four of the eight I
want you to answer. Two will be on social/biographical material and two on
technical questions. You'll have one hour to do the essays. I'll provide
uniform paper for everyone.
-The next reading assignment will be:
1. Chapter 5 of Universal Computer, by M. Davis on Hilbert first, then
proceed to Berlinski's Chapter 5 on Hilbert also. We'll be working on
these readings next week (after this Wednesday's essay quiz) on both
Monday and Wednesday.
Go back, up one level
