Welcome to Math 4310, Introduction to Real Analysis I, Spring 2021. Take a look at the course syllabus, and the course textbook.

This web site will be where you find

so check the site regularly.

Class will be over Zoom at 991-699-1928 at the specified times, starting January 19, 2021. The first videos and assignment will be posted soon.

  • For extra help, we have to LA's working with 4310 students.

    Nhat Pham will hold problem sessions every Friday morning from 9:00 - 10:30, and

    Alex Semyonov will have office hours on Monday 7:00-8:00pm and Tuesday 2:00-3:00pm.

    I hope you all take advantage of our LA's! If you want to talk to me, send me an email and we will arrange a time to meet on zoom.

  • Take a look at this quick video introduction

    Chapter 2

  • Here is the first video lecture on section 7 of the text (limits of sequences).
  • Here is lecture #2 where I prove the "Squeeze Lemma".
  • Here is lecture #3 on bounded monotonic sequences. (they converge!)
  • Here is lecture #4 on Limsup and Liminf.
  • Here is lecture #5 on Cauchy sequences.
  • As promised, here is lecture #6 on subsequences that will hopefully help it all make sense.
  • Here is lecture #7 on series and the comparison test.
  • Here is lecture #8 on the integral test and alternating series test.

  • Homework problems for Thursday 1/21 and Tuesday 1/26

    Section 7, #1,2,4,5

    Section 8, #1,2,3,4,10

    Note: When doing these problems (and in general) try to think your way through the proof before starting. If you are *positive* that you know how to write down a proof, then you can skip the problem. If not, start to write and see where you get stuck.

    And expect a quiz based on the homework first thing tomorrow (tuesday). This will help me guage how we're com prehending the material so far.

  • homework for Tuesday Feb 2. We will look at a few from section 9 on thursday January 28.

    Section 33 #3,4,5,10

    This will probably be as far as we get this semester!

    Final Exam

  • Final Exam: The only strong opinions on the timing of the exam were hoping to have the test earlier. This is fine by me, so let's have the exam right after our review session on Thursday, May 6. The format will be just like the midterm: I'll post the test right after class and it will be due on Friday, May 7, at midnight MDT. That will give you plenty of time. The test will be comprehensive, but will stress the material we've covered since the midterm exam.

    Here is a study guide for the final exam.

  • And here is the final exam.
  • You should have received your graded finals today (May 12). If you have any concerns, let me know as soon as possible. Here are solutions the exam. As you probably realize, I made this test harder than the midterm since the class, as a whole, demonstrated that I could ask more chalanging questions. So the numerical grades were lower (the average was about 72/100). But this does not mean the letter grades were lower. I curved the exam so 80-100 are A's and less than 80 range from B+ to B-. Everybody learned some analysis this semester. It was a pleasure to try to explain this material to you, and I hope you all enjoyed the course.
