CREDIT: 3

COURSE DESCRIPTION: Continuation of MATH-450; differentiation, integration, infinite series.

Prerequisite: MATH-450.

  1. TEXTBOOK: Introduction to Real Analysis, 2nd Ed., by Stoll (adopted 8/01) & Closer & Closer – Introducing Real Analysis, 1st Ed., by Schumacher (adopted F08)
  2. (Previously used: Advanced Calculus, 1st Ed., by Fitzpatrick.)

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

  1. To review elementary mathematics from an advanced standpoint.
  2. To provide insight into the role of rigor in mathematics.
