ANALYSIS MA286

Module homepage for 2014-15



Text:

Most of the homework questions will be taken from Murray Spiegel's elementary level book: Advanced Calculus (Schaum's Outline Series). I recommend that you buy this book.
 
However, my prsentation of material in lectures is very much based on Harold M Edwards advanced level book: Advanced Calculus: A differential forms approach (Birkhauser). I recommend that you take a look at this book in the library but don't buy it.

Assessment: The end of semester exam will count for 70% of the assessment. The continuous assessment will count for 30% of the assessment.

Continuous Assessment: The continuous assessment will consist of three equally weighted in-class tests based on the homework/tutorial problems. Each test will consist of questions taken verbatim from the homework/tutorial sheet. Many questions on the end of semester exam will also be taken, almost verbatim, from the homework/tutorial sheet too. Here is a version of the end of semester exam with question details omitted.

Homework sheet is available here.


Lectures take place at 11am Monday in the AC201 and 11am Wednesday in AC201. The lecturer is Graham Ellis.

Tutorials take place at 6pm Tuesday in IT202 and Thursdays at 2pm in IT207. The tutor is Graham Ellis for the first few weeks, and then Adib Makroon.
