You need to be able to clearly state the princi- ple of mathematical induction and do a induction-based proof. Sample problems: 1.2, 1.5, 1.6, 1.9. 2. Fields, properties of Q and R . I will not give any problems directly on this. Don’t bother memorizing the axioms in Paragraph 3, this is something ”you already know”. However, make sure you are confident with inequalities, absolute value, and the triangle inequality. 3. The completeness axiom.

You need to be able to state the Completeness Axiom (4.4), the Archimedean axiom (4.6) and the denseness of Q (4.7). Sample prob- lems: 4.1-4.4 (try to do these in your head), 4.5, 4.6, 4.9, 4.15. 4.
