The real number system. Limits of functions and sequences. Differentiations, integration, and the fundamental theorem. Infinite series. A careful study of the theory underlying calculus. The real number system. Basic properties of functions of one real variable. Differentiation, integration, and the inverse theorem. Infinite sequences of functions and uniform convergence. Infinite series. Overview The purpose of this course is to build rigorous mathematical theory for the fundamental calculus concepts, sequences and limits, continuous functions, and derivatives. We will rely on our intuition from calculus, but (unlike calculus) the emphasis will be not on calculations but on detailed understanding of concepts and on proofs of mathematical statements. An introductory course in analysis, required for math majors. It provides a closer and more rigorous look at material which most students encountered on an informal level during their first two semesters of Calculus. Students learn how to write proofs. Students (especially those thinking of going to graduate school) should take this as early as possible. Prerequisites C or higher in MAT 200 or permission of instructor; C or higher in one of the following: MAT 203, 205, 211, 307, AMS 261, or A- or higher in MAT 127, 132, 142, or AMS 161. Math majors are required to take either MAT 319 or MAT 320 Textbook Homework Weekly problem sets will be assigned, and collected in Wednesday recitation. The emphasis of the course is on writing proofs, so please try to write legibly and explain your reasoning clearly and fully. You are encouraged to discuss the homework problems with others, but your write-up must be your own work. Late homework will never be accepted, but under documented extenuating circumstances the grade may be dropped. Grading Homework: 20%, Midterm I: 20%, Midterm II: 20%, Final: 40%.

Syllabus/schedule (subject to change)
All joint lectures through 10/2 meet in Math P-131.
First recitation on Wed 8/27, second recitation Wed 9/3.
During joint lectures through 10/2, students with last names starting A-O attend recitation in Harriman 112, students with last names P-Z attend recitation in Lgt Engr Lab 152

Recommendations on choosing MAT 319 vs MAT 320 will be made based upon your performance on the first midterm and homework to that date.
