Description A careful study of the theory underlying topics in one-variable calculus, with an emphasis on those topics arising in high school calculus. 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, 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 MAT 250 or permission of instructor; C or higher in one of the following: MAT 203, 211, 220, 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
B or higher in MAT 200 or MAT 250 or permission of instructor; C or higher in one of the following: MAT 203, 211, 220, 307, AMS 261, or A- or higher in MAT 127, 132, 142, or AMS 161.

Homework Weekly problem sets will be assigned. 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. Your lowest homework grade will be dropped at the end of the class.
Homework will be submitted via Blackboard
GradingHomework: 20%, Midterm I: 20%, Midterm II: 20%, Final: 40%.
Midterm IWill be during recitation, in person, Monday Sept 21. Exceptions to the "in person" policy will only be given for documented extenuating circumstances.
Midterm IITBA
FinalThursday, Dec. 17, 8:00am-10:45am. Online

Syllabus/schedule (subject to change) The first 10 lectures will be joint between MAT319 and MAT320. After that, we will provide each you you with a reccomendation as to whether you should go on to take MAT319 or MAT320. These will be based on your performance in the homework and first midterm. The plan is that the material in the first 4 weeks will cover the first 2 chapters and part of the 3rd chapter. The first midterm will be on the 5th week during recitation (in person).
