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 7, as shown in the daily syllabus.

There will
be 630 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, 110 points of hand-in homework, and three larger written
assignments worth 40 points each.

You will
receive three bonus points for each Problem of the Week which you correctly
work.

The final
exam will be given out on Monday, 23 April, and will be due on Tuesday, 1 May
at 8:00 am.

There will
be a lot of hand-in homework, which is not unexpected given that it accounts
for over 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 writing is especially important in the
three large assignments.

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 3:00 to 4:00 on Monday and
Wednesday, 2:30 to 3:30 Tuesday, 1:30 to 2:30 Thursday, and 10:30 to 11:30 on
Friday. I spend a lot more time than that in my office. On most days I will
spend all afternoon in my office.
