|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.|
|No of Credits:||Four|
|Dates:||May 16 through August 3, 2016|
|Grading:||The students' final grades will be computed from the following formula:
|Attendance:||Attendance is recorded on random days.|
|Problem Session:||Regular lectures are held on MWH. Problem sessions are held on Tuesdays, when students are asked to present problems on the blackboard. Students who volunteer to present a problem in a session will receive 100% on that week's homework set.|
|Assignments:||To access the most-recent version of the homework problems
click on "Assignments" at the bottom of this page. Homework is assigned
weekly, together with explicit in-class due dates.
A subset of the problems are graded weekly.|
Late homework is not accepted.
|Exams:|| There are no
make-up examinations in this course, and the midterm exams
are not comprehensive.
