If you are interested in what you can do to learn mathematics and study effectively, here are some tips.

Course Information: The text for this course is Introduction to Analysis, Wade, 4th edition.  Topics will be familiar, but we will be proving things instead of taking them on faith.  Analysis is like calculus on steroids.
Expectations and Grading: This course requires a lot of work. Homework will be assigned daily. You will participate in class, take frequent quizzes, and take three unit exams as well as a comprehensive final exam.  Please ask questions in class.  On homework, quizzes, and exams, show your work. Correct answers with little or no supporting work will receive little or no credit.

I will do my best to explain things clearly in class.  I will also try to go over one or two homework questions at the start of each class. However, due to time limitations, I canít do much more. If you donít understand a homework question, please come to my office hours. I will be happy to help you there. However, because of the pace of the course, I will not always be able to go over things multiple times in class.  It is up to you to make sure you are keeping on top of the material.  Read the book, and if you have questions about a section, please come to my office hours!  I will be happy to help you.

Credit for the homework is based on effort.  Homework displaying serious effort will receive full credit.  I do not accept late homework.

The grading scheme is as follows:
There may be a curve on individual exams, in which case the letter grade on the exam expresses the curve.  Keep track of your grade
