(March 26) I've reposted
Homework 11. There was some confusion as
to the way the cosine function was written in
(March 25) I've posted
Homework 11, due on Tuesday.
Since Homework 10 wasn't done very well,
question 1 on Homework 11 is similar in
spirit to Homework 10. So before doing
Homework 11, be sure that you understand my
solution to Homework 10 (and why possibly
what you wrote may not have been correct or
maybe not easily justified).
(March 24) I've posted the notes for
yesterday's class. That includes the
comments on Homework 9 and the notes and
proofs from 2.3 on properties of continuous
functions. Check back tomorrow as I
expect to post a new homework due on Tuesday.
(March 21) I've posted today's lecture notes.
(March 21) I've posted my
solution for Homework 9 and also Homework 10,
which is due on Thursday.
(March 17) Ok, it's time to
get back to work. I've posted Homework
9, due on Tuesday. Also, please look
closely at my solution of Homework 8.
Several of you really did poorly on this
homework and showed very little understanding
of the concepts of covers, open covers, and
the depth of the Heine-Borel theorem. I
didn't put a lot of detail in my solution, but
please work through it and see if you can get
a better understanding of what is involved.
(March 8) There's something I'd like you all
to think about concerning the order that
statements appear in complicated
definitions. To see it, click on the
to think about . We can
discuss it in class tomorrow.
Practice problems These are
problems from the text which you should work on.
Graded Homework These
are problems to be turned in for credit. There should be
no discussion or help from anyone else in doing these homework
Lectures Outlines and Class Notes Here you will find the outline of my
lectures and scans of the lecture notes. You should
read the appropriate lecture outlines in advance of the
corresponding lecture and start thinking about the ideas
introduced. You should also make an effort to fill in
the gaps left in the lecture outlines. In this way you
will get much more out of the lectures.
Quizzes and Tests
Here you will find copies of the quizzes and tests given
Syllabus The syllabus for the course can be found
here. It lists test grading policies and other information
about the course.
