Introduction Numbers Course Information What is a real number? What is a “real” number? The “Reals” ( R ) are all the numbers that are needed to fill in the “number line” (so it has no “gaps” or “holes”). Why aren’t the rational numbers ( Q ) sufficient? How do we know that 2 is not rational? How can we prove this? Approach : “Proof by contradiction.” Instructor: David Earn Mathematics 3A03 Real Analysis I

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
