Reserve Books:
I have put a number of analysis books on
reserve for our course in Collier Science Library. My top recommendations from
the ones there are:
Elementary Analysis: The Theory of
Calculus by Kenneth A. Ross.
Fundamental Ideas of Analysis
by Michael Reed
Methods of Real Analysis by
Richard Goldberg
Introduction
to Real Analysis by Bartle and Sherbert.
I have put copies of the textbook from
the Transitions course (spring 2010) on reserve:
An
Accompaniment to Higher Mathematics by Exner.
It can be useful to see how
other authors discuss the same material. Sometimes they will explain it
differently and in a way that makes more sense or that goes into more detail
than our textbook.
There is also a copy of
Calculus by Steward, edition 6E, on reserve. It can be useful to go back and do
some calculation problems for the topics we will be doing more theoretically in
our course.
Weekly Quiz: There will be a
weekly take home quiz covering the basic material from the previous weekÕs
classes. Typically you will have 20
minutes. It will be closed book.
Quiz Redo Policy: The quizzes will be
assessed Mastery (M), Developing (D), Not Yet (NY). If
you do not demonstrate mastery on the first try, you can redo. The goal is for you to learn the material. Persistent
is a key trait for success in all endeavors; if you are willing to keep working
at it, I am pleased to support and encourage your efforts.
Homework Grading Policy:
The homework makes up 15% of
your grade. 10% of this total will be awarded for effort. Each homework problem
is scored either 3 (= demonstrates mastery of the material), 2 ( = developing; shows some mastery but not yet complete), 1
( = made an effort but not yet able to do the problem), 0 ( = not attempted).
You will receive full credit for
effort on each problem for which your score is 3, 2 or 1. You will not receive
credit for effort on problems that are scored a 0. The percentage of homework
problems that receive effort credit will be translated into a score out of 10
at the end of the semester.
5% of your homework grade
will be awarded for demonstrating mastery of the material and will be
determined by your scores on the homework.
Late Homework: Twice during the semester you may hand
in homework late without any penalty.
You have up to one week after the homework is due to hand it in. After
you have used up your quota of late homeworks, additional late homeworks will
be assessed a penalty: 25% deduction if one class late, 50% deduction if two
classes late, 75% deduction if 3 classes (one week) late; not accepted after
one week.
