Updates: (March 26) I've reposted Homework 11. There was some confusion as to the way the cosine function was written in number 1.

(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 following link:

something to think about . We can discuss it in class tomorrow.

**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
in class.**

**Syllabus** **The syllabus for the course can be found
here. It lists test grading policies and other information
about the course.
