**Material to be covered:** Chapters 9,11,12 and 13 from Munkres plus the material on (co)homology from Munkres and Hatcher. Some additional sources may be used. Additionally, each student will make a short in-class presentation based on material chosen from the book(s) (or other suggested sources) in consultation with the instructor.

**Prerequisites:** MTG 5316 (Topology I) or instructor approval
