CourseMarks Score®

9.0 / 10

CourseMarks Score® helps students to find the best classes. We aggregate 18 factors, including freshness, student feedback and content diversity.

Freshness Score

9.5 / 10
This course was last updated on 11/2021.

Course content can become outdated quite quickly. After analysing 71,530 courses, we found that the highest rated courses are updated every year. If a course has not been updated for more than 2 years, you should carefully evaluate the course before enrolling.

Student Feedback

7.3 / 10
We analyzed factors such as the rating (3.8/5) and the ratio between the number of reviews and the number of students, which is a great signal of student commitment.

New courses are hard to evaluate because there are no or just a few student ratings, but Student Feedback Score helps you find great courses even with fewer reviews.

Content Score

9.6 / 10
Video Score: 10.0 / 10
The course includes 15h 50m video content. Courses with more videos usually have a higher average rating. We have found that the sweet spot is 16 hours of video, which is long enough to teach a topic comprehensively, but not overwhelming. Courses over 16 hours of video gets the maximum score.

Description

If we have a set of points $X$, how can we make a precise notion of closeness and locality? We can define a notion of distance between individual points and have those notions follow as consequences. However, we can be more subtle and define whats known as a emph{topology} on this set making $X$ emph{topological space}, which makes precise those notions of closeness, locality, and therefore the notion of continuity (the preserving of closeness) in $X$ directly. Subsequent notions which can also be represented in this setting are that of connectedness (and therefore disconnectedness), compactness and limits.

Look at the beginnings of topology and topological spaces. We cover much of Munkres Chapter 2 and its exercises but with reflection and introspection. The ideas are known by all mathematicians and yet the presentation is considered too new for most university students but at the same time looking back on it now is quite strikingly out of date. The basics are still the same but they appear different, the focus is on the concrete spaces and less on the functions between them. Some perspective is added with category theory in mind but much of it is looking closely at the foundations with a classical perspective.

Lots of the earlier basic examples of topological spaces are examined in detail.
Product spaces, quotient spaces, subspaces are all defined and examined topologically.
Continuous functions, closed sets, open sets, Hausdorf space, T1 space, limit point, basis, base, sub base,
Metric spaces and metric topology is currently omitted.
Connectedness and compactness is omitted.

This is for beginners in topology but not necessarily beginners in mathematics especially if you have not used you mind much before.

You will learn

✓ Define a topological space, topology, open set, closed set, continuous function
✓ Understand and use the notion of a base or basis of neighbourhoods
✓ Various universal constructions including product, quotient and subspace topology
✓ Definition chase, basic proofs, solve simple exercises with unfamiliar terms

Requirements

• Growth mindset
• Abstract thinking and thoughtfulness

Join me for meaningful learning that will have lasting value.
Much of the content takes a student through the experience of solving a problem from scratch, learning a concept rigorously or applying a concept to a problem. This process is filmed and presented here with basically no editing. To be truly great at maths you cannot just memorise disconnected facts you need to learn how to think, how to link and how to learn. For younger students we have the luxury of applying the things we learn in math olympiad problems. I look forward to seeing you in class!
