Synopsis

MTH314 Real Analysis II will develop concepts of differential and integral calculus rigorously. Mathematical rigor will be emphasized for this course. Students will be exposed to and be expected to acquire the skills to read and write mathematical proofs. MTH314 will be paired with MTH312 so that students upon the completion of both courses will have a better understanding of the contents of Real Analysis.

Level: 3
Credit Units: 5
Presentation Pattern: Every January
