Introduction to Analysis, MAA-4224, Fall 2006, Syllabus.

Location: LOV 200

Time: Monday, Wednesday, Friday 11:15 - 12:05

Instructor: Dr. Mark van Hoeij

Text book: Stephen Abott, Understanding Analysis, Springer, 2001

Eligibility: You must have completed MAC 2313 (Calc III) and MAS 3105 (Linear Algebra) with a grade of C- or better. MGF 3301 (Introduction to Advanced Mathematics) is recommended, but not required.

Objectives: This course will guide students through some of the rigorous underpinnings of calculus and analysis. Topics include: The real line; sequences and series; compact and connected sets; limits and continuity; and derivatives.

Homework and Quizzes: Quizzes will be given on most Friday's. Homework is due on the same day.

Exams: There will be one in-class midterm examination, the exact date to be anounced. A comprehensive two hour final examination will be given on Friday Dec. 15, at 10:00-noon (see the University final exam schedule).

Grades: Grades will be based on quizzes (40%), the midterm (20%), and the final (40%). Attendance and homework will be used to resolve borderline grades. Please contact me in advance if you know you will miss a class.

Makeup policy: Makeup exams or quizzes will not be given. A missed midterm or quiz will be excused only if you contacted me before the test and have evidence of acceptable extenuating circumstances (an excused midterm grade will be replaced by the final exam grade).

honor code: A copy of the University Academic Honor Code can be found in the current Student Handbook. You are bound by this in all of your academic work. It is based on the premise that each student has the responsibility 1) to uphold the highest standards of academic integrity in the student's own work, 2) to refuse to tolerate violations of academic integrity in the University community, and 3) to foster a high sense of integrity and social responsibility on the part of the University community. You have successfully completed many mathematics courses and know that on a "test" you may not give or receive any help from a person or written material except as specifically designed acceptable. Out of class you are encouraged to work together on assignments but plagiarizing of the work of others or study manuals is academically dishonest.

ADA: Students with disabilities needing academic accommodations should: 1) register with and provide documentation to the Student Disability Resource Center (SDRC); 2) bring a letter to the instructor from SDRC indicating you need academic accommodations. This should be done within the first week of class. This and other class materials are available in alternative format upon request.
