3 cr.

Prerequisite

MATH 235 or permission.

Course Description

This course provides students with an understanding of topics in calculus from an advanced standpoint. The material ranges across areas from theorems of vector calculus to limits and sequences of functions. More specifically, the course includes the study of cardinality and the real number line, convergence of sequences, approximation of functions, and the generalization of these ideas to the definition of a metric space. The main purpose of this course will be to increase the student's familiarity with the behavior of functions, so as to extend their knowledge of calculus as well as to prepare them for the more abstract concepts of real analysis.
