This is the website
for MATH 403, *Introduction to Analysis I*.
The text is *An Introduction to Analysis*,
second edition, by James R. Kirkwood. We will cover Chapters 1 through 9, as
shown in the daily syllabus.

There will
be 600 points of credit in the course. There will be two 100-point take home
exams during the course as shown in the daily syllabus, a take home final exam
worth 200 points, and 200 points of hand-in homework.

The final
exam will be given out on Monday, 28 April, and will be due on Monday, 5 May at
9:00 am.

There will
be a lot of hand-in homework, which is not unexpected given that it accounts
for 1/3 of the points in the course.
Note that there will be much less computational homework compared to the
homework in a calculus class, and there will be more writing (including proofs)
than occurs in more elementary classes.
You will have to put some effort into learning how to write mathematics
well. This includes using complete
sentences and paragraphs to write mathematics.

The daily syllabus show
some practice problems for most class days. You do not have to hand in these
problems. You are to do them to see if you understand the course material. We
will go over most of these problems in future class periods. Hand-in assignments will be distributed electronically
and via hard copy. These assignments
will be clearly distinguishable from practice problems.

If you need
help please come in and see me. My office hours are 2:00 to 3:00 on Monday,
Tuesday, and Thursday, and 1:00 to 2:00 on Wednesday and Friday. I spend a lot
more time than that in my office. On most days I will spend all afternoon in my
office. I will also spend one night per week in my office from 7:00 to 9:00.
(That night will vary from week to week but will usually be a Monday, Tuesday,
or Thursday.)
