Course Information
Description: This Honors course is a rigorous treatment of analysis required for a fuller understanding of the calculus, as well as preparation for graduate school in mathematics and other disciplines requiring analytical and numerical solution of equations arising from mathematical modeling. Standard topics of an introductory analysis course will be covered, along with additional concepts which do not necessarily follow the text. Attendence is required and the exams will be over the lectures and homework. Course topics include:
Recommended Text:
Principles of Mathematical Analysis, (3rd edition) by
Walter Rudin, McGrawHill Science/Engineering/Math, 1976.
[ISBN 9780070542358 (also available in paperback)]
Grading: Three tests (indicated on the calendar below) will each factor as 20% of the course grade. The homework, turned in on a regular basis, counts 15%, with the comprehensive final exam accounting for the remaining 25%. Makeup tests are not normally given. Graduate Students will be required to complete additional problems for homework and on exams, and complete a term paper.
Expected Outcomes: This course is considered as an undergraduate 'Finishing Course' for Mathematics majors. As such, students will be expected to master the concepts of analysis (in particular the listed topics), provide mathematical rigor to arguments, and demonstrate the ability to effectively write mathematical prose.
Attendance: Classroom attendance is required according to official university 10% policy. Makeup tests are not normally given for missed examinations.
Important Course Dates:

Prerequisites: Admittance is restricted to students in the Honors College and to students approved through special petition to the Director of Undergraduate Studies, Dr. Douglas Meade.
