Spring 2024 - MATH 320 D100
Introduction to Analysis II (3)
Class Number: 3838
Delivery Method: In Person
Sequences and series of functions, topology of sets in Euclidean space, introduction to metric spaces, functions of several variables. Quantitative.
Who should take this course?
The course is aimed at students interested in rigor, mathematics and mathematical thinking. Along with analysis 1 and introductory algebra, this is a foundational course. That means the concepts and material in this course will be used in further mathematics courses. It also means that it will require practice and dedication.
What is the material we'll see in this class?
The breathtaking description in the calendar says: Sequences and series of functions, topology of sets in Euclidean space, introduction to metric spaces, functions of several variables.
You were introduced to many of these ideas in Math 242 (Intro to Analysis 1), and this course delves into these concepts in a deeper way. We'll revisit the notion of distances, and we'll see some generalizations of the notion of continuity, differentiation and integration. We'll examine again sequences and series of functions, and end the term by thinking about some familiar "special" functions: exponentials, logarithms, sines and cosines.
Since this is still a new and very careful way of thinking for most students, the key to success in this course is practice.

This course is delivered in person, on campus. Should public health guidelines recommend limits on in person gatherings, this course may include virtual meetings. As such, all students are recommended to have access to strong and reliable internet, the ability to scan documents (a phone app is acceptable) and access to a webcam and microphone (embedded in a computer is sufficient).

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS
SFU’s Academic Integrity website http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the university community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the university. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the university. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
