Description: | For many of the students of this topic, this is a first course in university-level, modern mathematics. The purpose of the course is to learn how to form correct, rational arguments ["proofs"]. This is done in the context of a rigorous development of calculus of functions of one variable. Particular emphasis is placed on constructing correct, logically-sound derivations and arguments. We will cover the material of chapters 1 through 5 of the textbook, and also chapter 6 if time permits. | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||
