Exams – general discussion In general, Real Analysis exams will contain the following types of questions. (There may be more than one question of a given type. ) 1. Give the definition of a concept. Make sure to give a complete and coherent definition. Example: Given a nonempty set S which is bounded above, define sup S . 2. Give the statement of a theorem with a name . Example: Write the statement of the Cauchy Criterion for convergence. (This is Theorem 2.41) 3. True or false questions. If a statement is true, make sure to prove it is true (If it is a theorem in the book, do not prove the theorem. Just mention that it is a known result.) If it is false, give a counterexample. Example: True or false? (a) Every convergent sequence is bounded. Answer: True – theorem in the book. (b) Every bounded sequence is convergent. Answer: False, because ( - 1) n is bounded, but not convergent. 4. Prove a theorem stated in the book. It could be anything that was covered in class. If a “trick” is involved, I may provide the trick as a hint. However, I do not consider usual limit arguments

What students are saying

    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.
