This course is an introduction to point-set topology: we will study topological spaces, continuous functions, notions of convergence, connectedness, and compactness; separation axioms, Urysohn's lemma, metrizability, and Tietze's extension theorem; quotient spaces; and function spaces.  Elementary notions from algebraic topology will be introduced as time permits: homotopies, fundamental group, covering spaces, deck transformations.
