Math 370 Real Analysis I Fall 2011 Instructor: Eric Hayashi Prerequisites: Grades of C or better in MATH 228 and MATH 301. Text and Materials: Basic Elements of Real Analysis by Murray H. Protter, Springer ISBN 0-387- 98479-8 Supplementary Notes by the instructor, posted on iLearn Course content: This course provides the foundations for and rigorous treatment of the topics found in a first semester calculus course: an axiomatic development of the real number system, limits of sequences, cluster points, limist superior inferior, the Bolzano- Weierstrass Theorem, limits of functions, continuity, uniform continuity, differentiability, the Intermediate Value Theorem, the Mean Value Theorem, L'Hôpital's Rule, the Inverse Function Theorem, and the Riemann integral. Course objectives: Students should learn the principal elementary concepts, definitions, and theorems of single variable real analysis. They should also master a body of illustrative examples. Competency will be demonstrated by being able to investigate specific examples as well as general questions. Solutions to questions usually involve the citation of appropriate theorems, construction of counter-examples, or proofs written in correct mathematical English. To a large extent, this course is about organizing and writing cogent proofs and solutions. Grading: There will be reading, weekly homework assignments, a midterm exam and a final exam. Homework counts 40%, the exams count 30% each.

    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.
