- ps6-464-2020.pdf: Differential geometry assignment 6 of 6 (Due Friday 29 May)

Exam/Test: There will be a take-home exam in early June; I plan to make that worth 20% of the total grade; the assignments will be worth 80% of the total grade.

Contacting me: The surest way to contact me is by e-mail. I do have Zoom and Skype access, but it would be better to first coordinate a time via e-mail.
