·  The textbook for this course is Real Analysis (third edition) by H. L. Royden.

·  The course will be graded based on homework and the final exam. Homework is worth 250 points and the final is worth 150 points for a total of 400 points. Grades will be based on your total points. Approximate cut-offs are 90% (360 points) = A, 80% (320 points) = B, 70% (280 points) = C, 55% (220 points) = D. Adjustments to this scale (such as plus/minus grades) will be made at the instructor's discretion.

·         The final will be Thursday, December 18, 9:45 am to 11:45 am in the regular class room (284 Carver)

·  There is a syllabus at the bottom of this page.

·  Late homework assignments will be graded when I have time but there is no penalty for late homework.

·  Here is a link to a list of numbered theorems, etc., from class with the corresponding reference from the textbook.  (The list was last updated December 10.)

· I will be out of town October 6 through October 19.  Watch this space for details on make-up class.
